Well thank you first of all for allowing me a minute to explain some programs.
You know the first let's look at the landscape that we -- our country -- is unwinding after eleven years of two wars.

No doubt about that let me ask you one question while we have you -- about the political climate -- -- no longer a -- part of the DC you're always known as.
Trying to work -- together you know your Republican known for working with Democrats bipartisanship and all that kind of thing and now every story see written is that how that.
How that attitude is gone and it's you know it's just nothing gets done what do you make of it also true in -- You worried -- what -- you make of the current climate DC.
Well in the current climate in -- DC reflects I think society in that people are frustrated or angry.
M and I think most of us understand that this country is been through an awful lot the last few years wars in.
High unemployment and some of the other issues that are.
Plaguing our our country today but were strong country -- tremendous people will get through this we need to bring our leaders in this some.
Consensus to govern to find solutions yes you need to.
Express yourself and have a political -- view what's the role of government how much government you want what should government do how much can you afford.
But you've got to bring it together to govern that -- you find solutions you compromise.
And I am hopeful that we get in the next year we get through the elections this year.
That the American people will demand that our I think our leaders will respond to that end and I'm optimistic about our future that's a tough time now yes and it's -- It and it's a difficult environment to govern and we have big complications.
In the world today in our country it's not easy right but we've we've got to put our country first party sector what's up you end up being right about that senator hagel and combined with -- work you're -- -- the veterans thanks for joining us thank you.
