So think about this -- you know that last year they were -- torturing each other at all parties trying to figure out they can cut a trillion dollars if we just have a one percentage point increase that phrase it wipes out any of the savings to work or deep deep trouble financially and I'm struck by exactly what you -- Barack Obama is going around on the campaign trail whether he's -- Ohio.

We make of it always the five trillion dollar and I would react that's like three dollars over ten years and spending.
5310 years which would still leave us with 33 and dollars and more spending than we have today.

Is Medicare let me just give you a couple numbers on this -- -- -- -- -- even I was surprised by these numbers and I immersed myself and -- Hot right now we're spending about 500 billion that's billion with a B.
Year on Medicare in ten years were scheduled to spend a little over -- -- 850 billion dollars a year on Medicare.
Under the Paul Ryan plan the same why and that the -- this saying is gonna push granny over the -- in a wheelchair.

Billion dollar increase in Medicare over ten years.

Incredible different times we live in my friend.
