How that would be viewed by proponents of [the new law] that they labored many years to pass, I don't know.

The people who are most affected by the hurricane won't be the means test candidates anyway because they will earn way below the median income. They only have the clothes on their backs.

People think the (bankruptcy) law is going to be repealed on Oct. 17. It's not.

While certain sectors, like the automotive industry, are under pressure, the bigger picture shows there simply is not the kind of the volume we saw in the past. It's not 2001.

Any [bankruptcy] judge from the [hurricane-ravaged] region is going to be sympathetic to the idea that these people were severely disadvantaged by what happened.
