(CNSNews.com) President Barack Obama wont have to worry about his paycheck if the spending sequestration included in the Budget Control Act that he signed into law in 2011 begins taking effect this Friday.

Funny...he’s also exempted from *all* the provisions of OsamaObamaCare...all gun restrictions.I wonder why!
None of the elected politicians will be affected.
What’s wrong with you? Never question the King’s judgment lest your head be cut off (or given an IRS audit or die of a sudden heart attack).../s
Yet he HAD to release scores of illegal aliens today. God I hate that man.
Obama’s paychecks are similar to the paychecks of Congress — it isn’t the paycheck, it’s the perks.
Each gets a $multi-million amount of perks for staff, drapes, paperclips, etc.
Let him have his salary, Sequester all of his golf and vacations for him and the 1st family.
The biggest congressional perk was their exemption from insider trading laws. That’s how all these guys can become millionaires in just a few years while earning only a $175,000 salary.
In spring 2012, a bill passed both the Senate and House to end this exemption, but I haven’t found whether Obama signed it into law. Anyone know?
I’ll bet his and Moochie’s and Mama Robinson’s gigantic public funded expense accounts are exempt too.
The President shall, at stated Times, receive for his Services, a Compensation, which shall neither be increased nor diminished during the Period for which he shall have been elected, and he shall not receive within that Period any other Emolument from the United States, or any of them.
Short of a Constitutional amendment, no law (including the law that set forth the "sequester") can diminish the salary of the President. Following the ratification of the 27th Amendment, the same is true of Congress, by the way - the sequester doesn't (and can't) touch their salaries either.
The Greedy SOB OBummer!
