I'm not in favor of diminishing the punishment for white collar criminals. Prison time for financial crimes committed, such as during the 2008 economic lapse, is the only effective punishment for Financial Services industry crimes. Anything less serves that our judicial system is set up to reward white collar upper class crimes with fines, and that time behind bars are only for the under classes. This is not how a healthy Democracy functions. Justice and punishment must be applied in a uniform and measurable way across all criminal classes.

This is a terrible perversion of criminal justice reform efforts. Reckless and negligent destruction of citizens' livelihoods NEEDS to remain punishable if there is any hope of honest, average Americans ever ceasing to pay for corporate greed.

The rule of law is worthless if it serves as only a decorative ornament on widespread corruption. The social order is preserved by the faithful observance of rules and laws that do not diminish our humanity. And our humanity is crushed by unbridled greed, corrupt governance and public laws that serve narrow private profiting.

This bill not only subverts the rule of law and principles of basic fairness; in allowing corporate executives to engage in unfair dealing and looting, it creates the circumstances for a more unequal and crisis - prone economy. There can be no plausible justification for this bill, especially at a time when prosecution of ordinary criminals has resulted in the U.S. having the largest criminal population in the world.

The Federal Government has a responsibility to it's citizens. Passing something this ridiculous will only hurt us more. This "improvement" is only for the rich, to allow them to get away with crimes. You MUST oppose H.R. 4002

This bill improves the criminal code - for the criminals! As it is, the wealthy corporate baddies have plenty of layers to cower behind to avoid justice. Please don't enact any additional tools for these tools. Thank you.
