Even tackle entitlements Carl.
So far on the Republican side some pretty good takes potentially camp and -- in the house.
-- very high degree of seriousness on the house part of house Republicans in trying to.
Position for -- some kind of a serious.
A package of deficit reduction senate the -- group is very interesting and very impressive Jon Kyl retiring.
Probably one of the most respected Republicans in the senate Rob Portman.
Being acknowledged as one of the budget experts in in the in the senate former director of the Office of Management and Budget very smart.
Very insightful and a good bipartisan capable working across party lines.
And then to be a Pennsylvania who is a outstanding fiscal expert and particularly understands implications for the markets of all the things that congress is about -- to be talking about.
So very good -- some Republicans had a little bit interesting on the senate side for Harry Reid.
Max Baucus is the chairman of the Senate Finance Committee and mobile and should be on the committee and is a dealmaker.
-- John Kerry be interesting weather's gonna be a legacy seeker or a spear trucker for.
More partisan members of the Democratic Caucus.
But the interesting one is Patty Murray she's chairman of the democratic senate campaign committee and doesn't have a particularly strong policy background.
And it's interesting why would Harry Reid put her on there may be hopes to to be able to shake some of the trees because I'll tell you abortion in DC.
K street is scared to death of what's gonna happen with this.
With this bill and how might -- a whole bunch of boxes and so campaign contributions might be raining down on.
On the chairman of senate democratic campaign committee as a result.
Well speaking of getting gore and you watch the stock market today and really any day in the last several weeks.

Very similar figure from whereas -- 72%.
Saying that so what does -- White House do in this environment.
Where you seem to be boxed in with no spending even know -- the Washington Post saying we need some bigger stimulus.
And -- this kind of climb.
Well let me add one more set a bad numbers this is the pollster dot com every two recent polls on the president's job approval on the issue the economy and this is an average of recent polls.
This in these numbers are likely to worsen for the president as earlier polls -- several weeks ago.
It dropped off.
I replaced by brand new polls it to the president looks like he's trending down on this number.
The president simply cannot get reelected at at if these numbers remain around these levels either the right track wrong track.
Where the approval on the economy now right in my piece for tomorrow's Wall Street Journal on this very issue.
And I think the problem is is that the -- abolished his best chances here over the last several weeks to set a tone of confidence.
And particularly this speech on Monday I think we'll look back and see was safe and deeply flawed.
And missed opportunity deeply flawed speech and huge missed opportunity should be president of spoken during the weekend -- -- his words could could sink him.
And steady to the streets while the markets are still open on Monday and and He says nothing He should've laid out.
He should taken responsibility on himself rather than blaming the SMP or saying this was a Tea Party damn great.
Presidents look bigger and we have more confidence him when they take more responsibility on themselves.
And He should've laid out a plan a plan -- to tackle spending so that we get the four trillion dollars.
Its deficit reduction.
That that the markets seem to be looking for and second -- also that we had some specific things on entitlement reform.
Where we could Begin to make progress don't wait for grand bargain to take the things that Republicans and Democrats seem to agree upon and start to move them.
I think it would give confidence to the markets and certainly confidence to the political structure.
-- is great to see thank you so much and we will surely -- that piece in the Wall Street Journal and yours tomorrow Carl that I care they well thank you thank you.
