  • 5 Percent Big Deal
    mdyoung216
    So he is going to give up 5 percent of $400,000, when you doesn't pay for food, utilities, house payment/rent, gas or car payment. I'll give up 5 percent too, if all my other bills are paid.

  • Too Funny

    I guess it's the least he can do since sequestration was HIS idea in the first place. A REAL gesture towards solidarity would be to recommend a 5% pay raise for feds in his 2014 budget. Don't hold your breath.

    The Budget Control Act was not Obama's idea or bill. You need to do a bit more research to find out who the author or designer of the sequestration really was. Keep in mind we had a similar sequestration during Reagan's term called the Graham-Rudmann. I realize some of you were too wet behind the ears to remember that, but it is a fact. I am not a fan of Obama, but it burns me up when I see this same Limbaugh/Fox News baloney constantly posting on news blogs! GO be somebody and learn how to research and use reading comprehension a little!

    IF you actually do some research, sequestration was the President's idea. Now that it's become law, he's hoping that uniformed liberals will forget it was his idea so he can use it politically to bash the Republicans and once again blame someone else for his actions/inactions.

  • I am being asked to give up 10% over the next 6 months
    fact checker
    Because the military won't scrap the F350 Because Congress keeps on giving the same amount in subsidies to bail out the 12 richest banks, while non to community branches. Because we don't have enough people who believe in Single Payer Healthcare. Because Congress won't take a paycut. Obama's 5% is peanuts compared to the real problem. And he can address any of these with an executive order. Still waiting.

  • Not really
    Spanky
    An executive order could not be used in most of what you state. please re-read the first 3 amendments of the constitution. The President can not over-ride a congressional authorization bill, of which most are set by that law. The F35 would be the easiest and most efficient with billions in savings alone... but since it fingered out to many congressional districts, the powerful folks in Congress refuse to even talk about it. It is simply out of the question and with the backing of the powerful MIC and corporations, there is ZILCH about it in the news. Heck, not even the Pentagon wants to continue it right now... but it is a few hundred billion OVER budget and at this point, a failure to the design. Everytime I hear them testing, I think of the just the tens of thousands wasted in jet fuel alone... but the Pentagon reduces security and electric useage on the bases.... while the F35 is zipping up and down the east coast p!ssing out millions! Thanks Boehner, Graham, McConnel, McCain, Kerry and the many other secret wasteful supporters!

  • Five percent means little
    JR Samples
    Five percent means so very little to someone who has free housing, free meals, free transportation, and does not have to work for a living.

    GetOffYour Butts
    We spend over $100 BILLION per year *EVERY YEAR) paying for the defense of Germany, Japan, Italy, Spain,. South Korea etc. with our military bases and our personnel defending THEIR butts. If they want out help let them pay. We are screwing our fellow Americans at home while we are paying to defend FOREIGNERS living in Foreign countries. Germany, Japan etc. can and should be paying for thoes bases and our protection, NOT us.

    Spanky
    you only knew how the status of forces (sofa) really worked in these countries, it would p!ss you off even more. None of them are in the USA favor. We have US officials that are sent to the negotiation table upon renewl, but rarily is anything in our favor. I agree! Let's threaten to pull out or renew the SOFA and put these countries in their place. If they feel the need of our protection, then it is time to re-negotiate the agreements, starting with free housing (bases), utilities and amendities! Start with that and watch the billions saved each MONTH alone!
