One word the year Daniel but Saleh.
And winds -- marshals say it's it there bottoms up -- we're never gonna bottom out guy stood above -- -- -- don't.
Explain how this works what do you do.
Also very simple like you said ones on -- Com we're tired of seeing our government you know of this out of control -- on and -- just not being addressed by our politicians and by our leaders here in Washington DC.
So we decided to a form our own super pac and the mission of our super Pakistani bipartisan means.
Just what we were saying government debt reduction.
And the way we want to do that is by getting politicians from both sides of the aisle to put aside there.
Difference is drop the drop the act freely playing -- -- bomb parties -- -- the media.
The rhetoric in the special interest and and said.
-- just made at the table with a few round Beers and not really get talking with their ideas and our basic thing is that.
We believe that if you can have a beer with someone you know you use -- -- respect to establish that.
Recognition and familiar -- -- with the each other.
They're gonna be more open to their ideas and we think that's.
On the way out from -- government's going to be a better government.
-- you might be right -- wins over looking a lot of these barges we haven't had one in three years you think about it on the ones that Arkansas did look like to put together by someone.
You know Canada mind's drawn -- so I'm not sure if that's a strategy but why do you think it would work -- they get together and just have a beer together.
Well I think that everyone has opinions -- in those things there are obviously going to be different.
But we've gone to the point where people -- fighting for things just because they believe them they're fighting for -- just because it's it'll -- to their party.
And that's really that's gotten out of control and I think that's hurting us so much right now.
Do you think they'll that this is the atmosphere of Florida and -- -- there's such things guys is angry drops.
And I'm wondering -- -- that's the case they might argue their positions.
Well I would hope not we elected these men.
To be represented us of the United States of America and not for their political parties.
You're you're very right that may be the case -- -- few congressman.
But I would believe that -- on I have have more faith in our politicians than that.
We're asking them just me at the table people person to person -- -- politician politician that's the whole bust a hole just.
-- a lot of guys I'd like what you think Robin Williams and I'd certainly remember you guys awaits younger does that.
Tip O'Neill the former speaker of the house and Ronald Reagan.
Would meet in the white -- residents are crunched numbers -- go over things have a good laugh and and and and make some compromises.
And like narrowly went on and we had great progress and -- memories -- -- right.
A big economic boom I guess I don't see it in the -- Washington.
Today -- among some I would say the personalities and -- -- I think we're we're trying to change that I think that it's kind of just a mental shift in general they were really pushing for.
Back to -- days where you could you know if you battle without on the house floor and then come together with your opponents.
And I think that's -- the shift that's occurred in our political system over the past few decades.
And we're trying to reverse that whole mental shift if you're impacting your recognized.
-- US government is being attacked right how did you manage that over beer.
Well how it's pretty pretty funny actually.
I decided late may early June I decided just to file with the FEC to see if I could do it how easy it was.
Turns out it's not that hard the rest of the work actually became the hard part -- but within a few weeks wins -- -- Actually did sit over a beer and decide what what -- -- students is important enough for us to invest our time and our effort.
Bomb and what's going to be our mission of our super pac ten of we thought is constant worrying about the future it was deficit reduction in a good idea -- -- you -- guys thank you.
They -- -- thank you for having us meanwhile from the prompted -- takes lead --
