Just a Thought...

If you're telling everyone you're going to cut your budget, it might help to, oh, I don't know... actually make real cuts in the budget.
President Obama plans to convene his Cabinet for the first time today, and he will order its members to identify a combined $100 million in budget cuts over the next 90 days, according to a senior administration official.

Although the budget cuts would amount to a minuscule portion of federal spending, they are intended to signal the president's determination to cut spending and reform government, the official said.
Well, it's nice to know that they do realize it's only a symbolic gesture. But that's ok- Americans are all about meaningless symbolic gestures.

Ace and the gang at NRO have some examples to put this whole $100 million cut into perspective. In a nutshell, I could have water instead of iced tea once this year and cut my budget at the same ratio. Oh, yeah... but I'd have to take out a $3 million dollar mortgage first...
