Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards is criticizing the Bush's administration's economic policies.
Edwards told supporters in Chattanooga, Tennessee, yesterday his
background growing up in the Carolinas gives him a better perspective on problems facing the South than his rivals, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.
The former North Carolina senator says the Bush administration has worked to make sure the rich get richer. Edwards says this comes as middle and low income families are having a hard time surviving.
He challenged those at an International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers auditorium in Chattanooga and a United Steelworkers office in Nashville to be part of what he called a "tidal wave of change" in America.
