Showing you care

underpaid-sizedThere’s an interesting thing going on in the White House.

It started when President Obama decided to give up five percent of his salary as a sign of solidarity for those affected by the automatic government spending cuts.

Now, several cabinet members have joined in and are donating five-percent of their salary to charity too.

It’s a sort of I-feel-your-pain sort of thing.

Hardly.

First, the amount being lost by some worker paychecks is a lot more than five-percent.

Second, these people, on the whole, are filthy rich and five-percent of their government salary is pocket change.

Still, it can be considered a nice gesture.

The trouble is, that’s all it is.
