There are some intriguing tidbits coming out of today's meeting between Obama and the Congressional Republicans. Happily, I was able to track down a partial transcript:
Congressional Republicans: We can get you a gaming license. The price is $250,000.Yeah, good luck with that, Senator.
President Obama: Now, the price of a gaming license is less than $20,000. Is that correct?
Congressional Republicans: Yes.
President Obama: So why would I ever consider paying more than that?
Congressional Republicans: Because we intend to squeeze you.
