Well do you recover from that later on.
And in that gap do you also -- less money in the future which means less consumer spending less affected our economy in a positive matter.
And what we're doing -- we're creating liabilities rather than assets in the population.

Young people already -- looking for a job what does this say about our future leaders say you know -- -- a bit early morning dog look for a job.

Do you think they'll come out for the president again do you think they'll say OK you know what -- -- is actually gotten worse but still not his fault or are they gonna finally sort of have some sort of an epiphany say.
Maybe these kind of policies don't work.
You know and if I wish I could say yes they will buy 2012.

We've seen track in that says they are not gonna come out that fast.
Jobs and economy and their parents put their parents are out of work one parent is out of work -- to use the work.
There might be more familial pressure to pay attention to the reality and politics that's our big hope that the parents combined -- those realities -- come up.
