Details on credit card reform

Here’s an interesting explanatory piece on the planks in the credit card reform bill that seems headed to President Obama’s desk for signature.

It’s better reporting that most of the mainstream media has done on the subject, but it doesn’t ask the question I hear most often: What does the bill do to help people who’ve had rates jacked up by the card companies before the bill becomes law?

I’d still be interested in the answer to that question.
