Part of that is reducing deficits on very much in favor of it in -- for our business our business is all about growth.
And my franchisees make big investments -- that look forward.
And if they realize you've got a strong economy and got a healthy economy won't build jobs I think that's what all this -- looking.
We'll talk to a lot of business owners of the past few years here on the show and otherwise -- -- -- say -- you know what they're they're tired of both parties' biggest -- up with both parties because both parties -- -- Like drunken sailors.
And got us into this mess and neither party has reduced the size of government.
Fifteen years no one's done it since the 1950s what is the business community want government to start doing.
I think we all have to come together I think it's not just about government I think all of us have to come together and some tough decisions because just when we -- manage our business the way you manage your personal finances we have to balance our budget can't spend more than we take in right if we did that we wouldn't be here so you heard is -- to be a bit about our franchisees are small business owners every day they wake up.
And they find ways to make sure that they run -- really healthy business that -- making sure -- spending what they would only look at what what comes at.
