So it was announced that President Obama is giving back 5 percent of his annual salary.
He should be giving his entire salary back. The president makes $400,000 in presidential pay, yet his tax return showed gross income of $789,674. I think he could squeak by on the remaining monies.
Lets' do the math - house payment, paid; electric bill, paid; gas bill, paid; oil bill, paid; grocery bill, paid; stylist, paid (like we all have one of those); manicures/barber, paid; cable TV, paid; car payment, paid - you get the idea.
I am willing to bet $400,000 would put many furloughed workers back on a full work week.
Washington should be ashamed of themselves, they will have to answer to a higher power someday.
