Because I know the statistics the real world is is that the average millionaire in America today it takes -- seventeen point three years to become a millionaire.
They -- an average of seventy to eighty hours a week to do that for those seventeen point three years.
And the last night our president declared war on success.
In the name of this class warfare politics in this in the he has come out and vilified the people who work like that to be able to win.
And then in the midst of that says it that that somehow is going to create jobs.

We have three years of doing that now and keynesian economics is a proven.
Failure the fruit is out there we can look at this idea that the government takes from people and invest in the economy to move the needle.
Is a proven failure it might have worked years ago but the ratio of govern so the size of government to the size of our economy is so small.
