If the foundations are for the enrichment of her employees, how are they really “charity”?

Publicity stunt. Especially for Kerry. Look at me, everybody. I’m going to give an insignificant portion of my wealth back, for an unspecified period of time. Now don’t you feel guilty for not manning up and accepting a 40% increase in your taxes?

NAILED IT

She is doing this to provide a massive deduction for her other forms of income....

RATS know the best way to work the system, be it the welfare or the tax system.

So now all Gov employees that can, will be known as the 5%’ers
So what do they do, have a lottery to see who stays and who goes? This is all BS to sway the voter that we are kind and caring! 0 and swiftboat have came out as well! Their tax deduction and refund will ovecome any pay loss!
ARE Libtards this dumb! Drink some more Koolaid!
Oh and because I like you I want to see you get ahead! Ya right! Fix the economy and get these GOV workers back in the private sector where thay belong so they can pay their 10% and get this country back on it’s feet! Instead of that sucking sound we hear every week as time goes by!
Never before have so many gave so little to benifit the few!
Not by choice but by Economic Failure from a Narcissist that has no clue to bounty wasted by the ignorant policy of a failed President, that thinks 25% of the nations workforce can support 75% of those who have no job or future!
1m out of work people @ 80.00 a week is 80m lost x52 weeks in a year! Put these pps back to work!

Oh good grief. These over-paid hacks are forced to take a few days off unpaid spread over a period of time, and the leftist loonies are trying to work us up into a frenzy over it.

Gee, maybe they won't get to take that expensive vacation this year, or perhaps they'll have to retire at 56 instead of 55. Oh, the humanity!

Is it just me?? Obama gave up his 5% to show ‘solidarity’ with furloughed federal employees. Hagel did the same for ‘pentagon employees’.....these jack asses think the only people that work or suffer are FEDERAL employees. And the rate we are going there won’t be any private sector jobs left, except for illegal aliens. But NO ‘solidarity’ for we native peons!!!

I hate these people.

Obama, Kerry, and now Big Sis donating a whopping 5% of their salary to charity. I wonder whose bright idea this was. Just trolling for political points as usual. They should give their whole salary to charity, seeing as they don’t do a God damn thing to earn it.

What’s with the “5%”?

Man Up, Janet

You and Barry can’t “afford” to take a 20% pay haircut like your secretaries and other lower ranking employees?

Its not a “few days of unpaid” time off
It’s almost 3 weeks with no pay. About a 20% pay cut overall for many of us.
For my family that equates to about a year’s savings.
Color our local economy empty when this hits - I know it will really impact us

3 weeks with no pay is a 20% pay cut? Um, how many weeks per year do you work?
