transit testimony but a new environment to for mass transit in the region. >> ok. thanks. all right. let me bring back the a plus panel. it seems to me the idea, it is a great hashtag. i love the hashtag. the reality is so many, so many donors and so many people now say we helped you great. fresh local donors to democratic operatives to hillary clinton taking credit and everybody waps a job and how's the new governor going to actually be able to fire people without political repercussions? >> well, i think, there is always repercussions that our elected officials look at org anything zas like new jersey transit you know, look department of edition, like machine think things in new jersey and say their first is to do a god job. if that means getting rid of that at the top. if than the masses delving in seeing what it could be done. they have to do it. >> you have return ifs well, it does. >> well, does it both are you
