And two for the sequestration to go into effect the Republicans will do nothing.
They're not gonna agree to tax increases you know it's funny the president talked about.
This balanced approach to secrets to seek professional have to -- -- and have savings.

We have a lot fewer emergency responders I guess we're all gonna die in fires.
Mean it's that.
An appropriate role of -- commander in chief.
Well let's just say -- the American people know who that is sort of gross exaggeration.
The American people are not out at the ramparts.

There here's an -- that during the recession and up through 2011.
Created a 140000.
Jobs -- the country was losing millions of jobs.

The oil and gas industry -- 41%.
Of its income.

Is probably to have 41%.
Is a huge.

Increasing our -- duration.
Do you have very -- world well -- that's the only way to get out of this mess is to grow ourselves out of who can't cut our way out of that we could make a good start that these should cut.
