5. I believe they should be, along with
all the others who have bankrupted the country. If found guilty, all of their assets should be seized and turned over to the U.S. Treasury to be used to correct their misdeeds.

It is time to make those who work to destroy our economy in an effort to enrich themselves pay for their damage. Complete asset seizure should send an unmistakeable message.

This would, of course, require some new laws, I think, but would certainly put the fear into the robber barons.
