WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama plans to give back 5 percent of his pay in a gesture of solidarity with government workers who must take unpaid leave as a result of deep spending cuts that went into effect last month.

The president's self-imposed pay cut would be effective from March 1, when the spending cuts began, and would last through the end of December, an administration official said on Wednesday.

Obama earns $400,000 a year. The official said the president decided on the 5-percent reduction, which would total $20,000, because it would be similar to the level of cuts to non-defense government agencies.

5%? Big deal. He has basically every aspect of his life paid for as part of his job - housing, food, transportation, fuel, health care, security, cable, phone, internet, electric, landscaping, trash, water, retirement. What the hell does he need a salary for anyway? 5% is laughable when he pays for nothing to support himself anyway.

He should take a note from Bolivian leader Evo Morales' book and slash his pay by 85%.

Now that's solidarity.

All of 5%...which amount to about 1700 a month.

Cool huh?

Well being the asshole makes roughly 400k a year, plus his book royalties, and the tax payers cover all of his, and his families expenses, this is just another part of "The Charm Tour" because his poll numbers are dropping.

It's all show and no go with this shitbag.

This didn't even cover a third of his little brats spring break vacation.

It's about $2,000 a month... considering the president gets paid a $500,000 salary.

Sounds like a pity gift.
