Guest blogger John Edwards says: 'I was wrong'
Of the punitive "Bankruptcy Reform" bill making its way through congress, John Edwards has seen the light: "Like a lot of Democrats, I voted for a bankruptcy reform bill before.

The problem is that this bill imposes big burdens on families who did everything right but went broke just because they lost a job or lost their health insurance..." (Talking Points Memo)
