The government already monitors U.S. Internet traffic, so it's not like they need to create a hidden portion of a new bill to grant themselves the authority to do that.
If cookie dumping isn't good enough, you can get a local proxy server that completely sanitizes all your content, or you can use online services that so the same.
I don't think the average user bothers (or knows how to) dump cookies. I think the single, magic button approach is what the Do Not Track effort is striving for.
