Lobbying Reform
I believe
an important principle
of any popular government
or of any self-respecting government
or of any government which recognizes that great temptation is more difficult to ignore
   than mild temptation
is that punishments
for identical crimes
committed by different persons
of different roles
in society
should reflect
their position.

If a Congressperson
or a CEO
steals a dollar
their punishment should be proportionately higher

Fastow, for instance, helped steal billions
and he does very little time
and Cunningham
committed crimes against every single American
involving millions of dollars
and there are people
doing life in prison
for much less.
