And continue -- the economy element that's basically what to Republican Fed Chairman said yesterday testified before congress.
You know it's not very difficult time coming out this recession and it is a different -- and 19969.

Right now -- we just we we have to try to keep -- keep to the extent that we have a recovery keeping on.
And I get a get a private the best private forecasters macroeconomic -- out of Saint Louis -- wouldn't.
Both say he's got to take a half a percent offered GDP we don't have about half a percent to give right now can't let me.
-- -- when there was a report that came out this week on health care it's gonna add over a long period of time six point two trillion.
Dollars -- -- are you suggesting we don't you think it's immoral to put this debt.
On our kids yeah -- get far more run and we're at right now we have 75% of GDP do we get an -- The good in those years if that health care costs in the last three years you've really started to flatten if that -- -- to continue.
We don't know that it we know we're not certain but if that were to continue that would be the best news possible for our children off a -- guys just.
You know do you notice as well as odd bit of weight or what would billion dollar natural gas coming -- -- got a cheap source energy Galloway good news -- -- -- -- this President -- didn't cheaper energy only on private -- because as it opened up public lands and then it was around the -- last week that -- Wear them out of the middle east of -- oil and energy got to go out back and you know what right now we're at right now.
