Good stuff from Bob Herbert today. Since I've just begun reading Elizabeth Warren's The Two-Income Trap: Why Middle-Class Mothers and Fathers Are Going Broke, the issue of middle-class bankruptcy is on my mind.
Indeed it would be nice if Kerry and Edwards would talk more about this. All I could find on their campaign web site is a promise to spend more money on child care, and that mainly through tax-credits. Warren pegs poor public schools as the core issue driving middle-class families into bankruptcy; its unfortunate that so far all I can find is same old same old from John and John.
