    ...and all this "Free-Market" and "trickle down" they've been pushing for years.  They have found a way to squeeze every last cent from the middle class, forcing it to the top and virtually none is coming back down.  This exploiting of prisoner's labor to increase profits has not resulted in one red cent flowing downward...instead more to invest and reap the interest off of.

    With this prison industry program, they even found out how to rape the taxpayers by diverting room and board expenses taken from inmates, back to the industry and their partners to use to defray their costs.

    Sad fact that our AG, Holder is in support of expanding more federal prison industries and locking up more Americans to feed the maw of that huge wholly owned corporation known as UNICOR.

    Hoping we can use the outcome in Nevada to focus attention and the findings and actions taken there upon other states.  I've been beseeching Congress for 19 years to hold hearings on the Pie Program and UNICOR to try and alleviate the jobs problem.  No answer, responses or returned calls...only beg letters for contributions to their campaigns.
