And For people who think that that is some sort of slight. I love these stories. There was one last year where some immigrant from louse Many years ago, ran from Comeere Ruse or one of those groups over there came to America. Had five daughters. I don't think the guy ever had a job that paid about the minimum wage that was about it, and he saved his money and spent was able to pay tuition for all five daughters that went to college. You can do it if you if that's your priority, But why would you prioritize it if you know that the government's going to pay for it? Let somebody else do it. Exactly. That's worth the government's where we are. We are The government ain't paying. Yeah, I are. So they're just going to take more money out of our target for someone else that Didn't care about their kids. Well, that's what this whole speech tonight is about is we need to get all this money for the families for the schools for the pre K for Health insurance premiums. All this stuff that you and I pay for And he's basically saying to America we need this money and we're going to get it from the rich people. So don't you worry, and we'll provide all these benefits. Hi. So he's willing to pay his own money. I don't know what he's wanting to know. No, He's not. He's in that top person. It got to be, Yeah. No, that doesn't apply to him. I'm sure there's a language in there on it. Yeah, well, I'll tell you what money out of it what he pays for Twister. Support someone else. I'll tell you, Stacey, your your your son is going to Have many dividends from watching you. Scrimped and saved to pay for his education and for him having to go to work the during the summers to get jobs to pay for it as well. That is a life lesson that will be a dividend for the rest of his life. He will know. What it takes. So that's an education all in itself. Anyway. Congratulations to your son and to you.

Well, you know, I'm thinking that's our our national. Our debt has grown like baseball's players. Salaries have over the last 30 years. Yeah. Remember when a baseball player you know when they made a million dollars you thought Wow. How can anybody pay a million dollars? The baseball player? Now they're making $300 million contract stuff like that. On the debt. You know what people don't talk about is the interest that we pay on that money. Well, I'll take what I checked The pie chart on the pie chart that we get. You know, you could find on the on the Internet. I make something like 70% of all the tax dollars brought in with just to pay the interest. On our loan. That money. We borrow that money that everybody comes from that money just not fabricated by the Treasury. We have to cover that money with taxpayer's dollars. So, but nobody but but say what they've been saying that for ever that you know what somebody's going to pay for this some day And yet nobody.
