G: 00:41:52 I want to do this carefully. M: 00:41:54 >> As long as you answer the question, you can do it any way you'd like. G: 00:41:59 >> Right now, if you're worried, as most americans should be about how we're going to afford these things in the future, how we can get back to living within our means, the most important thing we can do now is to get this economy back to where we're growing, where firms are investing again, where firms are creating jobs again. G: 00:42:18 And when we do that, the world needs to understand, americans need to understand we're going to bring those deficits down. G: 00:42:23 And that means we're going to have to bring our commitments and our resources closer into balance. G: 00:42:30 And it's going to require we do difficult things. G: 00:42:33 But again, I think most americans understand that if we don't do that, we're going to face a risk of slower growth, higher unemployment, darker future, and that's nothing something we can afford to do. M: 00:42:46 >> Sounded a little bit like a yes to me.
