President Barack Obama giving 5 percent of his salary to reduce the deficit is hilarious, given the enshrinement of his political organization into a tax-exempt not-for-profit entity called Organizing For Action, which receives the same tax treatment as St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Now hundreds of millions of dollars can be used for their political purposes free of state and federal income tax. This is a first.
No other candidate has ever kept their political organization intact after an election; it gets rolled back into the Democratic National Committee. Don't you wonder how the money will be spent?
Make no mistake, 21st Century American liberalism is all about self-enrichment and using social justice as a ruse to put money into the right people's pockets. Government for government's sake.
