  •  A bit more on retroactivity (0+ / 0-)

    This diarist (who at least edited the diary somewhat) points out the HRC opposes retroactivity because she is the "farthest right" candidate and behold to corporations.

    Interestingly, Russ Feingold, who is neither of those things, has co-sponsored a bill which opposes retroactivity.

    Joe Biden's bill, S. 1711, co-sponsored by John Kerry, Russ Feingold and Carl Levin is better. It equalizes the penalties between crack and powder at the current powder levels. But, the reductions are not retroactive, so they won't help the 19,500 offenders currently serving the disparate sentences
