To deal with our deficits and debt in a significant way three to four trillion dollars over the summer.
That did not come to pass that is the speaker himself said.
He put revenues on the table and we believe that if we're gonna address our serious economic problems we need to do it in a balanced way.
And -- if Democrats and Republicans are each willing.
Two you know put their sacred cows take on a sacred cows a little bit and compromise that we can get big things done.
As for the American jobs act.
