Mitch McConnell hasn’t officially killed criminal justice reform in the lame duck Congress. But the deed is almost done.

Senate Republicans left Washington on Thursday afternoon without discussing the matter at two party lunches this week, according to two GOP senators, a reflection of both the bill’s fading prospects and the awkward divide it’s fueled within the Republican Party.

McConnell has told Republicans there’s almost no window to take up the bill and debate it on the floor this year, according to multiple GOP sources. And supporters are now making a last-ditch effort to attach it to a year-end spending package, which most senior Republicans say is risky and unlikely to happen.

******************

So-called "libertarians" silent. On every issue of merit that there is something worthwhile and passable to be done; Republicans block for no reason other than demagoguery.

What cucks.

To be fair a lot of Reps support this. The Kentucky turtle is just too chickenshit to put it on the floor because it'd divide his party.

In both this thread and the OP article: zero definition of what "criminal justice reform" actually means. But hey, it has "criminal justice reform" in the title, so it must be good, right?

Tell me again about how Democrats work on logic and not retarded emotions. kthx

There is two separate bills before congress that are Criminal Justice Reform bills. They have some distinct differences and each bill has proposed amendments that have yet to be attached. Even if everybody in the House and the Senate wanted this done before the end of the year it wouldn't happen. They are not even in committee yet in what is close to a final version.

The common theme is reducing prison time for certain types of federal crimes (mostly non-violent) and increasing prison time for other crimes. Trafficking heron from other countries being an example of a crime that would get a more severe penalty.
The people in jail aren't going anywhere they can wait for 2019.
