And what he wants to do to help him get hot it got off the -- actually is it's not -- veterans it's not about Social Security now certainly it's about the 46 million people who are on food stamps.
And of course those are people that we could win for both of mean.
Ask anyone -- I'm sure they'd prefer paycheck where a little -- up around.
Not if you're saying you won't take personal responsibly a lot of those people working their rear ends off trying to make it that's what and it's as.
It talks about it that's the -- does what he says it doesn't Romney shop retool their message on this or -- they wait until the debate so I would I would I would I would re not retool it but to read the language is he Yasser -- language and understand the argument in the argument is one.
