Tom Bevan asks a great question

Tom Bevan asks John Edwards:
Assuming the Brookings study is true and that the poor really do pay more for goods and services including groceries, insurance, appliances, etc., then one would have to conclude Edwards is fully in favor of organizations that provide consumers (but especially the poor) with low-priced products that allow them to stretch their dollars further. So again we have to ask: why is the left so vehemently opposed to a company like Wal-Mart?

This applies in a lot of other contexts as well, such as school reform in the inner city.

typical liberal hypocrasy. Charter schools work, but the libs hate em. Don't many of the poor get food stamps? I work for an upstate NY grocery chain in an inner city store, and I see countless welfare recipients driving around in late model Escalades, Navigators, Infinities....what's up with that?
As for Walmart.....well it's cause they aren't union-friendly. All of the union grocery store chains that I have known over the past 25 years have all gone bankrupt. Huh, you think there's a connection?
Remember, the liberals are only concerned with style and appearance, not substance and results.
