And he seems -- to -- or.
Them or this sounds like you about -- I'd guess section of the season.
Don we're headed for the fiscal -- if you wanna pay your -- I'm certainly happy with that -- our got some of these other issues -- we're going -- -- not know where it we're not going over the -- -- Don.
It that the reality is.
The fiscal cliff is a real issue a real problem.
But it's it's really a symptom of a larger problem the fiscal cliff itself.
Will be resolved they will in fact to work out a deal even if it's to simply -- turn the mandated point.
Of those sequestered cuts that would take -- January 1 don't work out a deal.
The problem is is that we are in fact in a society now where we can't afford the obligations.
That we have committed to American citizens who have come to expect us to deliver the vessel's stern and that's Social Security I mean listen.

The revenue pool for Social Security in the year 2000.
There were 5000.
Americans who were 100 years -- -- By the year.
3000 just a short a hundred years there will be one million Americans.
Who are a hundred years old or older living.
Unfortunately none of them were in the studio -- prior written you know but the reality is is that we are creating a society where people because of actuarial statistics better health advancing science to -- -- I'm off some people what's that renewed the bump offs and people aren't I think that's an option that the revenue within -- everything's on the table to something I got that.
Now you can look at -- but there may be some other compromises that might be more -- more popular.
And and the Susan rise -- -- Arianna.

At this the American people would never get -- concerned about cabinet appointments we're not talking about an appointment to the Supreme Court where when -- senator says I'm inclined now not to support.
So and so for the Supreme Court that's big news that the -- but the fact is most presidents unless stick the nominee.
Make some sort of in this insensitive.
Racial or otherwise after the comment -- derogatory comment.
-- other or they're involved in some sort of personal impropriety you know the reality is is that the president whoever the president is.
Gets -- senate appointments without having to expend a great deal of capital.
And I think that that in the end as long as they cannot prove.
That she was specifically told.
That it was not the YouTube incident and that in fact she was able to present her case.
That I was given this information and that's what I've relied on line when I went before the press I think that.
If the president decides to appoint her she will be confirmed crystal -- -- Christmas -- -- my pleasure to be.
