This evening I ran across an A.P. article about trial attorney John Edwards. The former VP candidate and Senator held something called an “anti-poverty conference”. Thestory is entitled “Edwards’ poverty conference sees middle class slipping“. As soon as the middle class not only slips, but falls, they’ll be handed Edwards’ business card.
Of interest was reading about speakers at a conference hosted bya wealthy trial attorney, who has tan lines in the shape of ambulance lights,showing abject concern on the issue of the enormously high cost of, for one example, health insurance.
It’s fairly laughable, really. A trial attorney and his friends complaining about high insurance rates is like the Menendez brothers whining about being orphans.
