I got this one for ya deermunists:

He's such a compassionate person... "sniff" "sniff"...

I'm sure his advisers told him to do something regarding $$ that would make no difference whatsoever.

Not a chance.

I'd say the truth is more like some operative advisers felt this would "look good", and whatever concessions Obama has SUPPOSEDLY made, would simply be handed back to him under the table by some of his wealthy donors and/or those benefiting from the green-energy contracts Obama has been handing out to his cronies. Let's see, if you get a $20,000,000 dollar contract for you windmill company, and gave back $20,000 that would only be only 1/10th of 1%, so you'd still have $19.99 Million dollars. Of course, this would need to come in the form of a post-Presidency book deal, guaranteed speaking engagements that pay more per engagement than Obama has lost to the 5%, etc.

I think Bill Clinton gets $100,000 now per speech?

Politics as usual coming out of Washington, nothing more.

Takes a big man to give up 5% of his salary... while all of his living expenses are provided gratis.
Rules are for people who lose fights.
