What do you think of President Obama's action to take a 5% (20,000 for the year) pay cut?


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?

    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.

    True evilness is when an entire nation is lied to in order to engage in a fabricated war. Does a president wearing a flight jacket with a banner reading Mission Accomplished ring a bell or have we forgotten already?
