    no matter where they work.

    Most people in prison are just ordinary people without means or connections to keep them out of the slammer.  Most of them have done far less than your average politician.

    I actually know that from my own experience. Many are there simply because of administrivial violations stemming from language differences. I addressed that in my first post that says no jail time should ever be used for nonviolent offenses. Sure, crooks in Congress should be fined and penalized like any crook, make them sweep the streets for a few years...wash the feet of the poor, so to speak.

    HR 676 or California's SB-840 - the only health reform proposals worth my vote.
