Thank you so much you know like -- -- where we where million miles -- if -- outside the beltway feels like -- live on a different planet first the ball I mean that's that.
But we watch what's going on in Washington and we're thinking are they getting closer to a DO not because.
You know one minute everybody's friends the next minute they're sort of hurling insults at each other at a press congress -- you tell me what's going on behind closed doors.
I think we're seeing the up process of the the art of the deal you know both parties come very far apart.
They get a low closer and Iraq before they sealed the deal they gonna do -- -- posturing I like we're seeing right now.
Will probably take some votes tomorrow that really don't mean anything.
That will come back next next week right before the debt -- And the art of the deal will be done next week.

By eight you know so little it doesn't make any difference at all.
And it it doesn't seem like you guys are talking about controlling any of the massive over spending with which.
If this were my house and my budget we're this far out of whack boy we would cut up the credit -- -- -- down in the business not spending any more money.
You don't last year when we get the -- silly that we did cut over a trillion dollars over the next ten years.
More ready to cut more money and I certainly I'm one of those blue dog Democrats.
That I want to see more more cutting we need to do that I.
-- the growth of new spending that's not like actually cutting spending that's like slowing down the increase of spending.
Well that's why the -- -- is a good -- -- sit down.
