Biden not giving back pay, at least for now
Politico44 A Living Diary of the Obama Presidency ^ | 4/5/13 | JENNIFER EPSTEIN

Vice President Joe Biden won't be following the president's lead and returning some of his pay to the Treasury, but may if his staff faces furloughs.

"The vice president is committed to sharing the burden of the sequester with his staff," his office said in a statement Friday.

As has been noted elsewhere, Biden has a significantly smaller net worth than many of those who have offered to return money to the Treasury or give it to charity in a sign of support for those facing furloughs because of sequestration.

Most. Ridiculous. Stunt. Ever.

Obama’s “giving back” about $16,600. That runs AF1 about five minutes, barely gets it out of DC airspace on the way to another golf or skeet outing.

He wants to make sure he has enough to maintain his high level of charitable giving that he (and many other Democrats like algore) is so famous for.

Biden has been collecting Social Security since 2008 (around $6,500 a year)

The Bidens reported giving charitable donations $120 in 1999, about 0.1% of yearly income.

The only smart thing he ever did.

Why should he give back money? Just because the head turd did? That is no reason.

If after so many years as a rat politician, Biden isn’t filthy rich, he really is stupid.

If he gives the money back then how will he fund his lavish charitable giving of nearly $400 per year?

He doesn’t spend his own money anyway. How much of 16 Gs cover on one of his or his family’s vacays?

He earns 400 per year. He can’t cover his expenditures with that. He doesn’t.

If folks would just do some thinking.

I should say ‘people’. and I mean the ones who don’t think but who opine and who vote.

The ones who hate logic just because it puts their lives into a paradigm shift.

Sounds like the people who think politicians are in it for the paycheck. They are not. They are in it for the graft.

I chuckle a lot every time I hear of Congress or Obastard talking about taking pay cuts. Har. “We’re gonna freeze Congressional paychecks if a budget isn’t passed by” (insert some date). They must think we’re pretty stupid.

Exactly. If he really wants to show some solidarity with other federal workers, he could start by putting in a 40-hr work week for the first time in his Presidency.

I believe Joe Biden’s wife works too. I think she makes about 80K as a teacher/professor.

All the liberals who said Sarah Palin was stupid then voted for Biden. It’s truly laughable.
