President Obama will return 5 percent of his salary, retroactive to March 1, in a move intended to symbolize solidarity with federal workers being furloughed as part of the sequester, a White House official said Wednesday.

The pay cut will remain in place for the remainder of the fiscal year, and is intended to mirror the across-the-board cuts to federal budgets that occurred as part of the $85 billion sequester.

The president's salary is $400,000 per year -- a 5 percent pay cut over 10 months represents just under $17,000.

“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,” an administration official told The New York Times, which first reported the decision.

Yeah. His salary is pittance compared to what his golf trips and family junkets cost.

It gets better. The money that he gives back counts as a charitable donation, so he'll get a tax break on it.

5% is a joke. He should give more back. He is such a waste of space and air. Of course the liberals will eat it. Especially since they see 5% as 100%. Such retards they are.
