President Obama told reporters today that mortgage refinancing should be made easier “because they’ve got an extra $2,000 in their pocket. Then they can buy more hoagies or go shop for some outstanding organic foods,” according to pool reports.
The president was speaking at a small business roundtable attended by the owners of D.C.-based Taylor Gourmet, a sandwich shop, and Yes! Organic Markets.
The president spent $62.79 on sandwiches at Taylor Gourmet, and ordered a foot-long “Spruce Street” hoagie, “which has roast turkey, prosciutto, roasted red peppers, and sharp provolone,” according to the pool.
