Madolf is enjoying quite comfortable accomodations in a very well appointed federal prison, known for it's comfortable accomodations and ameneties. Considering this individual has billions in his accounts, he should have to pay for the cost of being in prison, fully refunding the tax payers. He committed the crime and by that many tax payers had to pay. Now we get screwed again by having to pay for him to live nicely (with free healthcare by the way). At least we ought to implement laws where prisoners must pay a percentage of their prison stay depending on the crime they have committed. All finance crimes (white collar crimes), they should reimburse all court and prison costs to tax payers.
