    Elizabeth Warren Announced a Plan to Ban Private Prisons. Then Their Stocks Tanked.

    Elizabeth Warren Announced a Plan to Ban Private Prisons. Then Their Stocks Tanked.


    On Friday morning—at 9:17 a.m., before markets opened, to be precise—Warren tweeted out her newest proposal, which would ban the use of private prisons in the United States.

    One key thing to note about this plan is that Warren wouldn’t need Congress to execute all of it—after all, federal contracts are handled by the executive branch. If you’re trying to price in the possibility of a Warren presidency (or a Democrat who is likely to follow Warren’s policy lead), this is the sort of proposal you really need to pay attention to.
    And it appears Wall Street was, in fact, reading. As Bloomberg notes, stocks for private prison companies such as CoreCivic and Geo Group Inc. tumbled Friday.


    Good.

    Get ready for over crowded state and federal prisons and court ordered releases, not to mention increased taxes to found building more prisons and hiring more officers.

    Leave to a prog to say what people think they want to hear, but have no idea about the consequences of it.

    You’re right. Now that so many states are banning abortion, prisons are going to be overcrowded in a few years. But private prisons have a lot of issues. The summary is they aren’t cheaper and don’t reduce crime

    They are cheaper, a lot cheaper in fact. All prisons reduce crime, federal, state and private. While they are in prison they are not committing crimes on the public.

    Baby killing one way or the other makes no difference in the prison population. They are all bursting at the seems do to our immoral culturally corrupt population.

    You notice they all use words like, ban, force, take away, etc.

    anyone votes for that party, is voting for TYRANTS, FASCIST AND COMMIES. idiots might as well cut their own throats they do vote for them. Only problem is, THE REST of us will have that FORCED on us who doesn't vote for it. scary and: why "the sleeping giant CITIZENS" need to come out in droves to vote for President Trumps RE-ELECTION. it will give us four more years to try to stomp out those nasty tyrants and hopefully that Commie party, calling themselves, Democrats.
    Yep that's why the sleeping Giant of Americans got rid of that thug Obama and his commie hand picked witch Hillary in a pant suit and put in PRESIDENT TRUMP.

    what gets me is these freaking Libs/Democommie cult members truly believe THEY ARE THE MAJORITY when WE JUST PROVED THEM SO WRONG. I LMAO AT THEM

    These aren't private prisons.

    They are privately-MANAGED prisons. Inmates are sent there from courts of law, under codified law, same as anywhere else.

    What private prisons are supposed to do is control costs, waste, incompetence, and perform management and administrative duties better. Same as with private trash pickup. Same as with a private auto company (Toyota, as opposed to nationalized British Leyland).

    What this is supposed to do, is get the sheeple all excited and fearful; and once in, the White Squaw has a whole satchel of new wampum for new civil "servants." Business as usual, with the budget busted.

    Kind of pessimistic, don't you think? You could just as easily say we can expect more rocket scientists.

    Unless you're implying there is a criminal class and it has more abortions?

    i'm kinda on the fence about this,,,on one hand, i dont like how we have turned incarceration into a business, on the other, they are usually better equipped and run than our old prisons,,[some dating back more than a hundred years]...also, some states ship prisoners to other states to house them, paying for that privilege...


    btw, the market reached a new, all time high, yesterday...
