2 cents out os a trillion amounts to 2 BILLION and a billion here and a billion there is still 'real money' we are talking about and if one can focus the impact of losing that amount so that everyone believes that it will cut THEIR goods, services, jobs or handouts, it is worth more than a trillion politically. On the other hand, if you can convince enough people that it is only 'someone else' who is going to suffer, it is stil a political gain -- until the person reralizes that to the person standing next there side by side is thinking that the person by HIS/HER side is that 'someone e4lse' and that eventually thay will realize that politicians always demand that the price be paid by someone else -- meaning NOT THE POLITICIANS.
