And the four leaders who -- votes to Democrats and really.
It's mostly the president and speaker John.
Boehner so the rest of us.
Are watching we're sending messages either by coming on to your show.

I think that's accurate.
But the fact that.
President Obama's -- -- -- editorials.
Sunday they've put up the same statement they haven't said anything for.
Two days now say he's very Boehner did he was -- griping about the president today not any -- specifics on spending Nancy Pelosi was saying.

You approach you've got to reach to find encouraging news right now and even -- everybody thinks.
We're gonna get together and not -- the country go over the fiscal cliff which of course.
And in all common sense and sanity that's what we would do.

A majority in both houses and the president have to agree and right now.
Not happening -- the you know the that I had to guess that is -- -- time.
That the real tragedy here and it can make your real angry is that if you talk privately.
To most members of both tells us a little is -- that -- way to do this.
You got to accept some revenue increases and we got to cut spending and the main thing is to cut the increase.
In entitlement spending and neither none -- that's popular.

Not to be popular.
But to help the country and I think if we negotiated a -- class action agreement that's part would be the best thing we can do for our economy senator thank you very much got us here.
