What about earmarks? If all 9,499 of last year's had been vetoed, this would have saved $15.9 billion, or a risible 0.45 percent of spending.And he concludes:
Last year, Obama ordered 15 department heads to find economies totaling $100 million, which was then 13 minutes (0.0029 percent) of federal spending. His new rescission proposal also is frugality theater and is similarly frivolous.But Will doesn't take the cheap shot of dubbing the bill the RUSe Act. He left that for us. A ruse is "a wily subterfuge" or "a deceptive maneuver" -- a perfect description for this misleading bill offered in response to growing public concern over federal spending.
