    Mr. President.

    But builders need tools. Unless we're going to stop having a capitalist society, you can't get anything done without money. Without spending money.

    We aren't going to get one damned thing on your list done unless you stop being allergic to spending money.

    You remind me of the king who demanded that the farmgirl spin straw into gold.  Or the Egyptians who demanded that the Israelites make bricks without straw (straw always comes into it somehow!)

    if necessary for years; if necessary, alone
