    Default In Solidarity With Furloughed Workers, Obama Will Give Up 5 Percent Of His Salary

    In Solidarity With Furloughed Workers, Obama Will Give Up 5 Percent Of His Salary
    April 03, 2013

    In an effort to show solidarity with furloughed federal workers, President Obama will give up 5 percent of his salary — $20,000 — this fiscal year.

    Obama's move comes a day after Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced he was cutting his pay.

    Because of the sequester, Pentagon employees have to take 14 days of unpaid leave. Hagel said he would give up 14 days or $10,750 of his salary.

    I thought that they would get that money back down the road? How about the 15-20% true unemployment rate that can't find work since 2008?

    It's a nice gesture...that means nothing.

    He'll be paid $1M per speech here in a few years, and write another book that he will earns millions of dollars for, therefore I don't look at this "sacrifice" as another more than just a gesture. It's nice that he made it, but he isn't feeling a pinch by doing so.

    Hell, he may win another Nobel Peace Prize as soon as he is out of office and not drone bombing the shit out of the world.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    If that money hasn't been withheld or otherwise paid as promised, no one will be madder about it than him.
