Why is this sort of gesture so attractive to politicians?

No one, I presume, is compelling the French state not to follow the proposed new rules without the need for them to be written into the constitution. Could it be that the politicians would not want to be blamed for expenditure cuts, so they do not want any discretion not to make them?
