Argue that you will be more productive.
If you are looking for a glossy brochure, the SAS web site has a "Fact
Sheet" (and other resources) that summarizes what Base SAS can do.
I don't think "Awesome SAS-L community that helps you solve any problem"
is on the Fact Sheet, but it should be!
Also, remember that the ODS statistical graphics are now part of Base SAS,
so you'll get PROC SGPLOT and it's graphical friends. If you haven't seen
what ODS statistical graphics can do, see the graphics galleries mentioned
