    While taking a 1000% increase from big banking/Wall Street. Just what would his pay cut do for the country?

    I agree it isn't much and seems largely a political move. With that said I can't say I don't appreciate it, and I could be inferring too much but I think it is to represent the contrast in which he will attempt to run the government from Obama. A lot of people, whether you like it or not, misguided or not, feel the government treating itself like royalty. The abuses of using private jets, then starting a battle with those who use then in which they engage in villanizing them to an extent. It is asking people to pay more while they hire more lime drivers than ever before. The first lady and daughters decide to take a vacation on Air Force One to Spain. It's just the whole perception, he is going to do on less and thats how a government should operate. Again, take your opinion out of what you feel on those stories. Some of this I find irrelevant such as the 200,000 pay cut, and even the other two to an extent. The Spain vacation puzzles me though. I still think I see what he is getting at though.

    But that will make us feel better when we get our 50% pay cut. Believe me, that's coming.
