A million plus right now that happy until the economy -- more than a positive direction on fortune you have all the rhetoric from the president this administration but he wants to stick.
To the plan would you could live with a million plus you don't like it.

GDP I think -- unemployment number goes a lot higher from where it is now how much time I think you -- another one to 2%.
If not higher than that -- By sometime in the middle of 2013 well and from that point I think companies are gonna have to really -- again.

Right because ultimately it's gonna put people at risk with.
