In January, Obama took 2% of every single working persons paycheck, and we were told it was for our own good. Funny how the government can't find 5% without falling apart and it doesn't even affect their paycheck. Ask federal employees to either find the waste or we’ll take the 5% from their paycheck and see how fast they can find ways to cut.
