pay-for
 n.— «I think Chairman Greenspan mentioned today that he thought that it would be a slam dunk, no-brainer if you could find a pay-for for that, if you could make it so that it was revenue neutral. But I would argue that if you were to look at the net economic effect of the president’s plan absent such a pay-for, that it would still move you to make this reform because, again, if we don’t, then we’re going to fail to address a very pressing problem.» —“United States Monetary and Economic Policy” by Committee on Financial Services U.S. House of Representatives  (Washington, D.C.) Apr. 30, 2003.
