Promises -- years and it really doesn't mean anything and that's where all the cuts -- and later years.
-- what fed says it triggering is it just you know a way to get a deal done then why are we looking at -- 789 incentives are making all the cuts.

Wiping off the books of one point six pre code that bad that's not real -- -- that you could lower the debt limit that you've been there we should get together and start cutting.
