Question: Will the president take the same pay freeze as his White House staff?
Answer: The president’s salary is set by law and Gibbs will review the matter with the legal staff.
Gibbs also offered a bit of a news: The president would receive a daily briefing on the economy from members of his economy team similar to the review he receives on national security.
As President Obama continues to shape his vision and unveil his far-reaching policies, some briefings are sure to grow in intensity. And I plan to be in the thick of the action.
