But meanwhile there is something else that is happening that could take effect little more than 24 hours later that's a possible government shutdown.
As the governor's -- many many times it's a mockery of that and Washington's.
That has prompted Italy's interest and in changing things in Washington and made on both sides.
Of the -- ought to do we have someone here has been been looking at this is a says it's not all just a one party -- James Cliburn.
Democrat of South Carolina and he's been trying to.
Cobble together a deal to avoid just that but it's looking -- -- -- like an uphill battle update me -- to think Stan.
It is an uphill battle but.
Really -- out hope.
That we will.
What is shutdown but let me say before I.
They get into -- to -- Of your questions.
How pleased I am to see.
Things -- took close in Iraq and I wanna say.

-- it's kind of weird congress and all what's kind of where does a lot of these soldiers coming no.
Could be coming -- a government that's just shut down I know you say that is unlikely but what would make did.
Unlikely then we're we're you close to sealing the deal -- -- because you got a little more and it's -- -- -- 48 hours to do it and you like four hours of work.

To seal a deal.
I think that those are the reasons I think that people recognized to -- rather get into.
Compromises to get this done I don't know that I would like to negotiate.
All of that -- on the but just let it the decision -- you can feel better.
Wrap wrap wrap up I never video but the fact of the matter is I think we'll close to get something done.
It made it -- -- the that what I walk.
But I expected to I don't think the government will shut down I think -- everybody we'll go home.
For the holidays and I think that that maybe some work for us to do.
When we get back here in January.
All right but so the president that I think Air Force One.
The jet engines on and ready to go to Honolulu he can go ahead.
