Nothing's been happening in Washington because we had this stalemate personnel long. And that's probably going to his companions but what we've seen in the economy as we started this week.

They have no concept about Barrett there only you know they don't understand people atomic less content but it thousand dollars a year that it -- They can't relate to that world an end though that they keep things from a different. -- ever important -- and I think that that's why they were they were very much against. Some of these things that you know they've never have to worry about you know going to the doctor pain in the bill they'd they'd never have to worry about the you know day to day issues in and a lot of people by keeping them that a lot of people of America do worry about the dignity issues.
