Obama, Hagel take voluntary pay cuts - The Maddow Blog

Yesterday, with sequestration cuts taking their toll on several hundred thousand Defense Department employees, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced he would return a share of his salary for the same number of days that employees are docked because of furloughs. The Pentagon's deputy secretary, Ashton Carter, said he would do the same.

Today, in another instance of administration solidarity, President Obama took the same voluntary step.
