Some people “do” and some people “talk”.
In the real world where you and I live, the people that “talk” get fired eventually. Hell, I have fired a few myself.
This latest lie shows once again that his “word” means nothing.
President Barack Obama pledged in the spring of 2013 to give back 5 per cent of his $400,000 salary in solidarity with federal government workers who were expected to lose an average of two weeks’ pay because of automatic budget cuts – known in Washington parlance as a ‘sequester.’
Mr. and Mrs. Obama’s 2013 tax return, which the White House published last month, shows an adjusted gross income of $481,098. The couple claimed $147,769 in itemized deductions, but no line-item for a $20,000 give-back to the United States Treasury is anywhere to be found.
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney reported on April 11 that the first family made $59,251 in deductible donations, and said that the largest such gift was $8,751 to the Fisher House Foundation, a network of ‘comfort homes’ where family members of wounded warriors can stay while their loved ones are receiving medical treatment.
They also deducted $42,383 in interest on their Illinois home mortgage and another $29,176 in personal property taxes. But the Obamas’ Schedule A, where they would likely deduct a salary rebate from their income for tax purposes, is silent on the matter.
Well done is better than well said- Ben Franklin
You’ll never hear that quote come out of Obama’s mouth!
