And nothing in health care should be done except down the road.
Everything every cost cutting device in whatever you -- -- call that thing.
Is down the road and when you're.
Democrats -- arguing -- that you don't need to because.
The health -- component in those those those those cluster easing a little bit now may be more revenues slowdown -- malvo aberrant factors so in a way that good news -- you call it that it's clear better than expected news is is giving them pause about cutting and I wonder whether that's -- whether president.
Is is done -- -- Well they're missing the point the talking about an immediate little actually in minutes and watch out the rocket ride comes I mean.
