Been raised -- to go to Republican senator John of -- on the phone with us right now.
What is the senate actually debating seven.
Operating -- the discussion is continuing resolution which would take its from October 1 through November 18.

And whether there should be offsets for that -- and of course we believe there should be.
OK now from what I understand though -- odd situation here's that FEMA.
The Federal Reserve managers association actually has more money than it thought and this is a moot point so you guys to move on but now things have gotten so bad.
And and and and the block between the two sides -- gotten so pronounced.
That a shut down still looks inevitable is that true.

Will defeat the current motion.
And -- I we anticipate that.
Senator Reid will present another motion which would be to.
Essentially pass the CR to continue resolutely ahead -- disaster assistance funny in it.
For fiscal year twelve.
And the house well -- to -- to concur with that in their pro forma session on Thursday and then come back.

Could skew why this keeps happening now.
I know Republicans -- Democrats zones when Republicans below average and markets is that you guys just constantly.
Go up against the bring both sides.
Are I mean we see this soap opera played out again and again and a lot of -- look at the next fourteen months is that I guess we're just gonna keep keep this.
Now and they're not in cards.
You don't know we need to find a way to work through this kind of gridlock and make sure that we create the kind of legal tax and regulatory certainty.
It encourages business investment.

Job creation in the private sector vs a bigger federal government and more government spending -- and that's really the debate that's going on -- we've got to get through.
And that's what's happening with this administration economy's getting worse because again it's about more government spending more regulation higher taxes and that's not -- -- What are you guys deserve running out the clock on this guy on some of the president not offering anything in the meantime in just letting -- sort of sort of -- and his own petard -- So we're we're pushing air every day to reduce the regulatory burden to to have to act reforms to create certainty.
To make sure that we're -- the -- -- create an environment.
