Either by calling in or texting is that we need to cut the politicians' salaries helmet that much. I am in the navy Donald Trump people might make billions but you know you'd not to be able to get them in my in my lower by a little bit. But we are going to be placed in the state one way or the other be the plane. More taxes I do not believe I don't care how much we yell and scream. I do not believe that all of a sudden they're gonna say look what we have here in the corner 700 million dollars us not to. I agree with you and they.
