March 25, 2009: What Obama said and what he meant (Politico)

I mean, you've got a lot of parents who are cutting back on everything to make sure that their kids can still go to college. You've got workers who are deciding to cut an entire day — an entire day's worth of pay so that their fellow co-workers aren't laid off.”
