Total Joke: Obama to take a 5% pay cut in Solidarity with Furloughed workers. Here is an idea, how about not take 1 million dollar vacations like the one with Tiger Woods this year.
Or maybe just one of these:
- No Sequester for Obama Daughters: From Bahamas to Ski Slopes
- Fiscal Cliff Looms, Obama’s off to $4M Hawaiian Vacation
- Obama Defends Family Vacations – I work hard, I earned them
- FLOTUS ski trip marks 16 Obama vacations – see the list Aspen, Hawaii, Martha’s Vineyard
Just one! To put things into perspective, a five percent pay cut for President Obama is $16,667, this is a drop in the bucket compared to the expense incurred by US Taxpayers every-time the Obama’s go out for a Vacay.
In a Budget Gesture, Obama Will Return 5% of His Salary
The voluntary move would be retroactive to March 1 and apply through the rest of the calendar year, the official said. The White House came up with the 5 percent figure to approximate the level of automatic spending cuts to non-defense federal agencies that took effect that day.
“The president has decided that to share in the sacrifice being made by public servants across the federal government that are affected by the sequester, he will contribute a portion of his salary back to the Treasury,” the official said.
