Think that the Fed is is making a mistake here -- -- kept perpetuating the growth and its balance sheet and behind all of this debt on their balance sheet.
And they could have achieved the same or even -- better objective by following a different policy.
But -- this is the path that -- on.

It was three and a half percent to go buy up on panels and -- and we have mortgage interest deductibility.
Where -- -- that our tax rates in California.
You're talking about an after tax cost of of interest on these homes at less than to -- don't think they'll take that away for.
