The White House and President Obama’s salary will not be affected by any of the sequestration cuts. The pay of Congressional members is also unaffected. Their salaries are all protected under the Constitution.
Meanwhile since spending is out of control and the finger pointing continues, there are warnings of fewer public services and procedures, as a result of the sequester budget cuts.
Americans are very resilient, having lived through the Civil War, WWI, WWII, Korean War, Civil Rights Movement, Vietnam. Watergate, Disco.
God willing, we will learn to live with these cuts as well because there are lots more surprises on the horizon.
