They're they're like modern day you know I don't Johnny Carson.
It's changed the law lets them go have a job let them go back into their communities and spend time with the people that they represent that's what we do in Texas we care legislate or 600 dollars a month.

Are you surprised that you felt so quickly in the polls -- think you lost your chance.
Now I'm not -- -- -- we're a long way from have an election over where if you go back and look at history and whether it was that.
In the 92 election.
When Bill Clinton was up and down back and forth and you go back in time even in 2000 night.

-- over the course the last three and a half weeks we just laid out our policy.
Dealing with energy and how to get Americans one point two million Americans work and laid out our tax plan where -- are looking at a flat tax and then we laid out how to deconstruct.
And and -- Reboot if you -- Washington with our part time legislature -- -- of the worst is over.
I think we're Guidant our work in front of us -- lay it out policies and talking to the American people about what matters is what this is all about.
And I think Americans are ready for part time legislature I think they're ready for a flat tax I think they're ready for a a individual who's got a record of job creation they're not anybody on the stage that has the record -- job creation and executive governance that I do so.
We're gonna talk about issues for the next 4550 days have the Iowa caucus and -- -- on.
