After a week of high profile fundraisers with Hollywood Stars in California and wealthy investment bankers in New York, President Obama hosted a "Hoagie Summit" today with members of Congress.
Prior to the scheduled lunch meeting with Congressional leaders, Obama went to Taylor's Gourmet, a popular deli in Washington D.C. to pick some sandwiches to go.
According to the pool report, Obama also purchased an assortment of hoagies for his lunch with congressional leaders at the White House today, and promoted the sandwich shop as an example of a thriving small business.
"My message to Congress -- and I’m going to have a chance to see the congressional leadership when I get back to the White House -- I’m going to offer them some hoagies while they’re there -- is let’s go ahead and act to help build and sustain momentum for our economy," he said.
"There will be more than enough time for us to campaign and politick, but let’s make sure that we don’t lose steam at a time when a lot of folks like these are feeling pretty optimistic and are ready to go," he added.
The press pooler confirmed that Obama's hoagie had roast turkey, prosciutto, roasted red peppers & sharp provolone.
