  1. The Good Senator does have a remedy to her concerns. She can rally support for a tax source (a new tax source) that will pay for the keeping of all future state prisoners in state facilities (with suitable health care and housing). It seems neither she nor her husband has ever taken into account the cost of their anti-crime efforts–so now, after the tax breaks and revenue reductions supported by them and others, it seems alternative solutions are being implemented. So, in short, Sharon, if you want to keep them–come up with a way to pay for them!
