Quotes

"(But) there's another part to the shining the city; the part where some people can't pay their mortgages, and most young people can't afford one; where students can't afford the education they need, and middle-class parents watch the dreams they hold for their children evaporate. In this part of the city there are more poor than ever, more families in trouble, more and more people who need help but can't find it."
"We continue to move forward with the reforms we put inin place" she said
..." It adds, "when families are unable to meet their payment obligations on either type of consumer debt, they risk moving... to a vicious debt cycle. Their credit history and scores can be adversely affected, their debt may go into collections, and they may ultimately lose property and future financial opportunities."
In an email exchange, he expanded on that theme. "All low-hanging fruit was pretty much picked" by the feds' war on poverty, he noted. "Everything since then is bedrock, locked-in poverty, seemingly impervious to further reduction in the South ... a cultural distinction."
