For blocking needed spending and I guess.
Just being cold heartless souls leaving aside in reality where the wheels and -- -- paying a for all these -- the congress doles out.
Must we use an icon to plug these morons and by the way this -- that was on capitol though he was reading off the prompter.

Says so you're you're you're you're -- point your thoughts.
We you know existing -- that Santa is actually a very adjust person.
He requires children not to be.
Naughty he requires in -- in implication he says that children should get what they deserve the death.
And so I think it's ironic that -- be using Sana about taken money from people that are produced it'd been basically given -- the people that haven't earned it.
Nearly I wonder -- does Wear red suit and he does does throw -- stuff for free but.
I digress I guess what I think he is indeed you've got to be really desperate when you start using Santa.
To make your point I guess it's by spring were so in arrears on things that we start -- you know -- about the Easter Bunny.

When in reality all they're talking about -- scaling the growth in some of these programs that are now growing out of control.

And we're closing in on Europe with blinding speed and and the consequences are reduced growth in Moody's will bay and that's what the conversation on the back up.
But -- say it's of that -- out you wanted it was very clear to me is that we live in a society now where the entitlements are just expected.
The gifts are just expected the freebies are just expected.
Web -- you can log on to to see how many benefits you cannot be eligible for that's expected I'm not saying there -- some genuinely needy and deserving folks in this country.
But to the point where now we're we're we're more about what we get.
Than than than than than what we can control.
We've lost control in -- You know in the on the other thing is that the at the San implication is that congress is just dole in this stuff that I -- -- nobody has to produce enough I -- -- pay -- taxes.
Yes it all comes from somebody and and and I don't really wanna face that -- -- -- It's about personal responsibility at the end of the day and that's really what the fight is about our people responsible for their own miles are we entitled -- -- miles per day basis.
