Cabinet Members Join Obama in Reverse Re-Distribution Plan
(PP)- In an effort by left wing politicians to show average Americans just how much funding the federal government means to the Democrat party, three liberal cabinet members announced they would join President Barack Hussein Obama and Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel in refunding 51% of their salary back to the U.S. Treasury.
Secretary of State John Kerry, who married billionaire heiress Teresa Heinz Ward for her vast ketchup empire, was quick in agreeing to give away his paltry salary believing that it would make him appear worthy of a second chance to run for President, this time in Egypt or Syria.
Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano and Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew reluctantly volunteered to reduce their pay, but did so only after receiving a memo from the White House demanding that the federal workers show their respect for the President and the all powerful State… or else.
“If President Obama and the other cabinet members who are just simple civil servants can give over half their income for the benefit of our wise and powerful government, why can’t the millionaires and billionaires of this country who own giant corporations do the same thing?” said White House press secretary Art Carney.
“Misguided Republicans will tell you that keeping money in the private sector is a good thing, but its not as good as allowing smarter, and yes, perhaps better government people to control the nation’s wealth. This President is putting taxpayer money where his mouth is, and making sure rank and file Democrats like Secretaries Kerry, Hagel, Napolitano and Lew show loyalty like good comrades.”
Critics of the Democrat’s reverse re-distribution plan say that taking money sent by taxpayers to Washington through the payroll system, and then in and out of the treasury two more times only to be delivered as foreign aid in cash to Muslim Brotherhood countries is neither efficient or sound policy, and is harmful to the American ecomony.
“Only 3 cents out of every dollar that is sent to Washington ends up doing any good for the brothers in the Muslim Brotherhood after the bureaucrats get done with it,” said one H & R Block agent. “And that’s why the Muslim Brotherhood is always so angry at Americans for wasting all the money that Obama is trying to send them. The way they see it, radical Islam would have nukes by now if America didn’t waste all their foreign aid on federal bureaucracies.”
The Palookaville Post has learned that all of President Obama‘s other cabinet members who are not as well financed will also be returning a majority portion of their paychecks to show solidarity with the pro-government movement, but only after they receive their April 15th bonuses for inspiring other Americans to give all that they can give.
