They're not gonna raise taxes on anybody before this election.

I think the president has got its feet on concrete it is got a lot of collapse if he doesn't get the rich taxed.
And I think we're gonna have a confrontation and now and November and December but he's not get new taxes before November.
What about -- the policy the president losing then it's a lame duck session amount what the presidents that it's it's a moot point.
