To spend some more capital so.
From the folks who brought you TARP and -- -- count billionaire investor Wilbur Ross.
They're worried joins exclusively on the phones will -- what on that I'd be here we go again non.
I guess I've heard talks of initiatives.

Not that I think they QE2 did very much except help stop.
And help the prices commodities go up.
If unemployment status as I think it will that -- -- very high levels.
And if inflation gradually moderates.
Which also think it will.

And that you don't think it's gonna go down well also we're gonna have these automatic triggers kick in that are going to be very -- -- defense.
Do you welcome that -- Well I think it's better than just having runaway budget deficit.
But it has put it really piece this but if -- right but it's what'll happen is the intellectual bankruptcy of the congress.

There's also far off into the future.
And -- is so great big -- -- disperse them.
So I think the only thing you can really count that was save.

This doesn't really have much budgetary impact.
But theoretically could surprise us from the floor -- structure.
And therefore put some people -- work I would get -- I never see that working with hundreds and you know I mean I remember the last time -- -- -- -- all of these shovel ready.

Right away by may as long as I've been in the tristate -- -- -- -- Connecticut area.
There didn't construction crews working in the now that the those crews grandkids.
Are working on those same.
Roads -- I don't see any end out there.
Both the same thing with Port Authority with these rebuilding of the world trade.
Then with the MCA and this.
They're supposed to go in.
This is not right this government is not good at managing projects there's certainly proven that and so on not supporting.
The idea of the infrastructure bank.
But I think they might sure -- that is the way you.
Not really busting the budget we've just got a task -- respect to the budget of -- spare us.
Is very limited amount of but additional fiscal stimulus but they could get -- Tattooed on my friend is always a pleasure and an honor -- on Wilbur Ross one of the saddest investors.
On the planet thank you Wilbur very much.
