President Obama Freezes Salaries for Washington Aides Making over $100,000

 

Thats refreshing! Almost as a sign of good faith, Presiden Obama has called for a freeze on Washington aides who are making over $100,000 a year. Hw staes, "while the rest of america istightening their belts, so should Washington."

Pretty nice step for the first day on the job. Hope he keeps it up. Check out the whole article at the Associated Press Website. - http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/O/OBAMA_EXECUTIVE_PAY?SITE=CAANG&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT

Halleluiah!  It is a start!  Since when should an AIDE make over $100 grand anyway?  Now if he will start on some of the other salaries in Washington and Congress etc...

I think it stops them from getting any annual increases in pay! If others are gettin their pay docked they should ast least get theirs frozen. Decreases wouldnt hurt either!
