The last Bush corrections official died quite a while ago

Since US prisons have abandoned education and job training programs for the 2.2 million plus inmates in the corrections system, when an inmate is released chances are Hep C is all he will bring back to his community.

"Think infected needles, jailhouse tatooing and piercing and think my tax dollars can't pay for education or job training or even disease testing..." mocked NIH/CDC epidemiologist Rich Frum-Yurtoxes.

TheSpoof.com's investigative reporters sought comments from Federal administrators of the Corrections System but apparently there are none.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
