And and and everyone's an advocate doing yourself don't and it's one ordered him but they're not doing its course -- -- -- a great deal.
Maybe it is time to the government stepped and it forced the issue that's one thing that the government could do to it to make things better and that is to change the structure of insurance Medicaid and -- -- -- Doesn't college people who.
