    Knowing he's giving back 5% of his salary. Especially when he could give back 100% and he wouldn't feel it at all.

    It really makes me even more glad when I read about trips to Hawaii, The Bahamas and Aspen while I'm clipping coupons and juggling the bills to pay this month.

      •  I'm also going to the Vineyard this summer - (3+ / 0-)

        not planning to cancel and I hope the Obamas don't either.  This, and the comment above it, are ridiculous - on so many levels.  It is what my kids refer to as hatin'.

        I've been coming to DKos since May 2008 and I still don't have a sig line. Oh well.....

    •  Why stop at 100%? (8+ / 0-)

      As long as you're volunteering someone else's wages, why not demand refunds of his senate salary?  After all, Obama's never proven he wouldn't feel it, and the concept that he's earned it hasn't occurred to you.

      That's not even "gun control". It's more like "massacre control".

    •  I am hiderating you cuz (5+ / 0-)

      you are spewing rightwing memes. This is straight out of Breitbart lies about the President's family. ENOUGH! SHAME ON YOU.

      This President DESERVES the salary and perks that come along with the job that EVERY president has had and no one has complained until now?

      This is the President who gave up the entire budget that he was due for furnishing the First Family's residence, and used his own money, gave up money to renovate his office. This president donated his entire Nobel Prize money to military children's charity. Yet is NOT enough for the likes of you.

      Yo are NOT concerned about workers furloughed. You are here trolling Breibart lies about Presidential travels. Hawaii is his birthplace that he has traveled to EVERY single Christmas since his schooldays. Where do you want him to go? How do you want him to travel? What do you expect him to do without the security detail he is entitled cuz the job is a dangerous job. Did you begrudge previous presidents their due?

      And the President's children travel expenses are borne by the President, except security detail which they are due regardless of their location. To regurgitate the breitbart drivel about bahamas is a telltale sign. The White House has NOT revealed if even the kids went anywhere let alone to the Bahamas. You peddle a LIE

      I've had it with the nonsense people like you spew on this site and I don't care of they ban me for the hide rate.

    •  BS HR here...uprated because we don't censor... (0+ / 0-)

      ..dissenting opinions, if I read the site rules correctly.

      Adequate health care should be a LEGAL RIGHT in the U.S without begging or bankruptcy. Until it is, we should not dare call our society civilized.
