TRIVIAL PURSUIT:

Obama to order $100 million in cuts (MIKE ALLEN, 4/20/09, Politico)

At the first Cabinet meeting of his presidency, President Obama on Monday will challenge the departments to collectively cut $100 million over the next three months, a senior administration official said.

The official said the exercise is “part of his commitment to go line by line through the budget to cut spending and reform government.”


My math is notoriously bad, but isn't that less than .3% of the federal budget? Is he intentionally mocking himself, or accidentally?
