President Obama announced that he was going to take a pay cut in order to relate to the other government workers who are taking pay cuts. He chose to cut his pay 5% and put that money back into the treasury. 5% of his salery turns out to be 20,000. Honestly what is 20k going to do for the nation? Is he leading by example in hopes that others might follow?

HE DID same as he did for the olympics, he was never a viable candidate. too many dumb people stayed home rather than vote for him. and the odumbo stole it any way
Why is it dumb for people to not vote for someone who doesn't have a patriotic bone in their body?
@pagesvoice Mitt is a damn sight more patriotic than the commie we have now.
That assumes he knows how to be a leader. His past 4 years prove that to be false.
Now, the pay of Congress and the President can be changed by a grass-roots Constitutional Convention, but our nation is currently so divided that such a move would be dangerous and would undoubtedly result in a riot.
