I'll Fix Your Fence

Two contractors are bidding to fix a broken fence at the White House.

One is from Chicago , and the other is from Texas .

The Texas contractor does some measuring and figuring, then says, I can do this job for $700: $300 for materials, $300 for my crew and $100 profit for me.

The Chicago contractor doesn’t measure or figure, but leans over to the Obama and whispers, $2,700.

Obama, incredulous, says, You didn’t even measure like the other guy!

How did you come up with such a high figure?

The Chicago contractor whispers back, $1000 for me, $1000 for you, and we hire the guy from Texas to fix the fence.

Done! replies the government official.
