Joe Biden refusing to participate in sequester pay cuts

Come on Joe. It's only 5%.

Via Politico 44:
Vice President Joe Biden won’t be following the president’s lead and returning some of his pay to the Treasury, but may if his staff faces furloughs.
“The vice president is committed to sharing the burden of the sequester with his staff,” his office said in a statement Friday. [...]
Several members of the president’s Cabinet have said they will cut checks to charities or to the Treasury, though most are wealthier than the vice president. Secretary of State John Kerry’s net worth is estimated as being as much as $300 million, while Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel’s net worth is estimated to be as much as about $10 million.
