That’s when they start getting uncomfortable and realize that they’re going to have to dig deeper. And by the way, there is a will to dig deeper in the United States Congress. I’m amazed across both sides of the aisle. People are waking up to the fact that, you know, there is a war against terror and it’s an expensive war to fight, but the war against poverty is necessary in the fight against — to win in the fight against terror.”
