It doesn't look like it's going to be a pretty day at this point.
I don't know that it really makes a huge difference because ultimately they will hedge anything they do in that regard by simply saying it is all data-dependent, there does seem to be a lot of focus on the language, but I don't know that the removal of the language, even if it happens, really brings the date of rate increases any closer if the data doesn't support it.
