The United States senate proceed forward with the limited -- very closely.
And he's got a lot of money.
He has a lot of money and she -- spent a lot of money and she will spend a lot of money as I know from my own experience you -- And idea.

What -- that meets for you what does -- Democrats for the people these hopes it.
A senate majority.
Gives the Republicans room to do a lot of things if you don't want to do.
First -- emphatically let people in Connecticut and I think around the country want is for us to work together.
Put aside the Republican Democrats labels and rhetoric and come together to reduce debt and deficit.
To raise revenue has to be a balanced approach and to compromise I think that is the -- I hope I -- -- you guys can't today.
Disapproving you're you're incapable of doing both sides well I'm new to the Senate's so I haven't given up hope maybe you have you have -- -- more.
Closely well I had seen an up close I don't know -- -- and -- I was there last year and I and and any any Democrat -- even addresses reigning in the growth of entitlement spending and they're cutting it does -- and it -- That's almost sacrilegious and by the way Republicans -- -- better that you get a date and loopholes and special breaks of allowances for businesses.
-- others say -- to -- -- raising taxes that's not gonna happen so you're you're it's like both parties are held hostage to -- No I think that things can change and they must change.

I really hope having talked to my Republican colleagues -- -- -- rate that means we'll come together maybe not all because there are some extremists.
Maybe on both sides.
But that mainstream of America -- is come together from those common values.
Reduce the debt the deficit.
Cut spending when you have first got to have to volunteered reduce the dividend as the first diet that -- -- say volunteers.
Your colleagues are doing.
-- it doesn't exist well I can't speak from my college but I -- none of them have I believe that in the end it must be balanced approach.
And I believe that we have to have hope that we'll do it because.

Armed services -- -- smaller more natural ground force need to cut spending there and doing it but not -- frustration and we need to close some of those tactical.

Regardless who wins the November elections are they gonna give all of -- a three month extension to work it out in the new congress new residents say.
President what -- I believe that if we have a democratic president there will be compromise I think really quite honestly you may not agree.
I am far from the first on the democratic side to believe that we need to reduce the debt and deficit -- And there may be.
Extreme views particularly on the Republican side that say absolutely no other revenue that I think the markets got resources of the a three month extension to view of the guest today is that what they would do.
I'm hoping that we will have a -- a real deal for a budget because I think we have a window of opportunity here and I hope we'll seasonal.
