You've been hearing about President Barack Obama's speech last night announcing he will protect some 5 million undocumented workers from deportation. However, the President will not allow this group to get healthcare coverage under the Affordable Care Act. So why is healthcare not part of the deal? And in honor of Marketplace's 25th anniversary, we're looking at some of the surprising ways prices have changed over the last quarter century. Today, art. Specifically, the prices of art considered so fine it's worth millions.
