leadership wants to preserve their insider trading!
You think they are working for YOU? Don’t make me laugh! Don’t be a bloomin’ fool!
Nancy Pelosi is famously a HUGE insider trader, so yeah, Democrat leadership really wants to preserve that. And so, of course, does Steny Hoyer–not just because he is the chief toady of SanFranNan, but because you can bet that HE is waist-deep in insider trading, as well…
But yeah, this is a disgusting self-serving failure of House Democrats. They are ALL as corrupt as the day is long!
BUT, as it becomes increasingly clear that Democrats will be the minority after the November elections, new members are jumping ship! (Note: this didn’t happen when the Democrat loss of the House was not looming. Rats. Sinking ship. Yeah.)
Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-Va.), [recently] incensed by the decision [though this is FAR from a new thing], said in a Sept. 30 statement that it was “a failure of House leadership” and called for a new generation of Democrats to take control of the party.
… “Our job as elected officials is to serve the people—not ourselves,” Spanberger wrote. “That’s why I’ve been proud to lead the charge on legislation to ban Members of Congress and their immediate families from trading individual stocks—not only because it’s the right thing to do, but because the Virginians I represent overwhelmingly support it and want us to get it done.
It’s nice to see some pushback, even if it IS overly convenient and is baldly instrumental…
