    Utterly disgraceful. White collar crime goes unpunished far too often as is. This is why I personally think politicians should generally not be long-serving, and changes in government are necessary every so often regardless of which party is in power.

    Yes, republicans are disgraceful, legislating "legalized crime", no surprise though. Expect corporate management ranks to swell icon_rolleyes.gif


    House Republicans on Monday unveiled legislation that would decriminalize a broad swath of corporate malfeasance, a move that injects white-collar crime issues into the thus-far bipartisan agenda on criminal justice reform

    This was actually the Republican's Plan B. Originally they just wanted to build more jails but didn't want to be seen as big government so instead they figured out how to make more room for more black people by further reducing the jailed white population.

    After they decriminalize white collar crime, they're going to work on legalizing white domestic abuse.

    Hopefully the Senate won't agree to this. Or President Obama would veto it, despite the overall bill containing criminal law revisions he has been promoting. Which could also be the Republicans' way of sabotaging the legislation with a "poison pill" the President can't swallow.
