And we should be pretty happy about that I think you're seeing that reflected in these market numbers.
I know over the course of the past week it's been a lot about the fiscal cliff understandably so.
But this has been basically a move on good news on the economy anticipating good news on the economy six months out.
And I believe there's no point argue with markets their right and -- and even points out how silly the Republicans were during the election to keep asking are you better off than you were four years ago.

Well I think only I think only a fool would argue.
And I and I think that the Republican should be gleeful about the fact that this economy is strengthening not to the point that we have sufficient hiring.
We've still got 23 million people out of work -- underemployed given up looking for work that's the reason.
