Obama returning 5 percent won't affect his vacations

Published: April 8, 2013

Regarding “Obama to return 5% of salary to Treasury” (Associated Press, April 4): The furlough that I'm facing will return 20 percent of my salary to the Treasury. I pay for my own vacations with or without my family. While he was president, John F. Kennedy donated his entire salary to charity.
