President Obama did it. So did Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, Secretary of State John Kerry and Janet Napolitano.
But the Vice President has decided to keep his cash, at least until someone in his office feels the pinch of the automatic budget cuts.
Many federal workers and some civilian contractors will face furloughs and other budget shortfalls as the cuts continue to evolve.
A worker in the VP’s office said "the vice president is committed to sharing the burden of the sequester with his staff."
One theory is that Biden just can’t afford it. His net worth is said to be under $1 million dollars much lower than most of the others giving back.
But as one man pointed out "still a lot more than the average guy makes."
The automatic cuts known as sequester were imposed on March 1 but of course nothing changed right away.
Most agencies are still trying to determine if and when the cuts will affect the offices and braches they work in.
