Symbolism

There are some things you do just for the symbolic value in them.

They show resolve or that you didn't make an oversight.

Like tipping a poor waitress a penny.  It shows you didn't forget to tip.

I'd like Congress to vote themselves a 50% pay cut and a 50% reduction in pension payments to former congresscritters.

It's symbolic because it's not that large an item in the budget.

It shows, however, that they are serious.  That the pain is shared.
