It’s a noble gesture, I’ll admit, but I’m just not buying it.
President Obama, Secretary of State John Kerry, and others are ‘donating’ part of their salaries back to the government and charities.
For most of them, it’s a drop in the bucket.
President Obama was a millionaire before he became President, and John Kerry inherited money, married money, and yet he remains out of the ‘evil rich’ group. Most of the public servants we elect year after year are filthy rich.
Oh, I get it, they’re trying to make a point.
We all have to sacrifice in this economy and these tough times.
But, the fact remains, that those in Washington are not doing their jobs. No budget in I don’t know how long, debt that would stifle most countries, and spending that rivals the Gabor Sisters!
In the private sector, which frankly, is all I know, if one doesn’t do one’s job, one does not donate part of one’s salary, one loses all of it.
So, let’s just not pay the President, the Cabinet members, the Senators, and the Congressmenandwomen, until they start doing their jobs.
You go to work and not produce and see what happens!
Feel free to discuss among yourselves!
