Regular border without suspense to build for each of -- the seven have to pass -- bill and it'll come to some agreement.
-- -- until the senate acts of stuff for the house to do so when people say listen we're really word about this fiscal cliff.
It's a nightmare -- and about two and that's why the house is active and we've done our work waiting for the senate to do -- Congress is not getting good marks overall every poll you look at it's down in low double digits some lower than that.
You're the house speaker does that bother you.

The American people if you look at all the polls that what -- little fix our economy and get jobs growth going again.
Mitt Romney's got a real record -- producing jobs he's the perfect guy at the perfect time.
This is what he said Parade Magazine he said quote I'm emotional I don't show it quite as clearly as John Boehner.
But I'm an emotional person.
There is I don't know societal norm that if you're running for office he can't be emotional and perhaps -- -- to that too often.
