    I agree. They make all the rules they play by, and public gives them all a free pass. We should be scrutinizing their pay and perks, and their insider trading.

    Tim-
    It's hard to say this is just a political move on Obama's part, because he wasn't the first person to give any amount of his salary back. Chuck Hagel was the first to do it, then Obama followed him.

    I haven't.seen anybody attack Hagel or Jerry, only Obama is getting attacked.

    Now Biden says he won't donate any of his salary.

    Obama’s insulting salary stunt
