To the economy.
Of what's gone -- in Washington in the fact the congress can't get together on anything the president top doesn't talk to leaders in congress they don't talk to the president.
What is it costs this economy.
I think the the fact that we now have -- the looming fiscal -- every every other week.
Has definitely credit and massive amount of policy uncertainty.
And I think that that that deters investment it reduces consumer confidence and I'm sure the the economic damage has been Syria is.

Absolutely they're overplaying their hand we -- -- somewhere sequester situation in 1991.
And really these cuts are up to the agencies as directed by the -- -- -- trust me he's trying to make it as bad as possible to make Republicans look like bad guys -- Santa.
So I I agree with that but I do think that that means a politically he's gonna have the upper hand.
