Giving Back

Although Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel was the first to offer to give a portion of his salary back to the treasury, Obama's announcement that he will do the same is starting a trend. Add to the list Secretary of State John Kerry, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, who will give a portion of their salaries to charity. Attorney General Eric Holder said he will give back some of his pay if the Justice Department has to furlough employees.
