A Truth Journal: More WTF? More Cool From Team Obama Giving Up Salary Money in Show of Sequestration Layoff Solidarity?: From Denny: America, forget about political optics, sliding our way this entire past week was more cool from the Obama White House channel.
Yes, it's true. There actually are federal officials giving away their money back to taxpayers. Happily blame Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and his Deputy Defense Secretary Ashton Carter for starting this trend when they jumped up and volunteered to put some skin in the sequestration game.
(See this post for details.)
"Yes, don't ask of your country what they can do for your wallet but rather volunteer some of your paycheck back to your country's wallet" may be the new political trend? One thing is for sure, these Democrats definitely make the Republicans look like the usual stingy political losers flying their freak flags on the national political highway.
