And it's still starkly in recession territory and it fell.
Point one point sell it's she 92 point eat and what's even worse is that job creation plans actually fell six points so that is not so they're not hiring and are also not buying new equipment which is -- -- the factories in the manufacturing sector now.
Definitely not good news the good dumb you know the bright side of this was that the outlook for expansion in the next six months gained three points -- and also those business owners who feel that things after the elections exactly one improve in the next three months also gained two points OK that's all -- and this is based on about 700 small business owners who are part of -- -- membership.
