Congress wholly abdicated its role when it created the Sentencing Commission. The SC was wrong to approve of this practice in Mistretta, and things are now turning around. Congress needs the balls to step up and say exactly what the penalties are for which offenses, allowing it to be held politically accountable for disproportionate sentences currently being handed down based on facts never sent to a jury and proved to a huge merely by a preponderance of evidence. The Framers would be rolling . . .
