    Way to hold Congress' Feet to the Fire!

    » BREAKING: House to Hold Hearing on Congressional Insider Trading; Both Houses Now Investigating - Big Government

    I LOVE IT!

    In the 70s and 80s Congress would pass laws and make themselves exempt. It took the Contract with America to start ending that nonsense.

    NOW we have another example of Congress making themselves exempt from laws that effect everyone else.

    You and I use insider info and we go to the pokey, but Congress?

    Apparently, Congress has heard from their constiuents AND are probably still sweating from the 2010 shellaquing.

    I think they might be worried if they don't straighten up, THEIR jobs might be caput.

    I love this!

    We all need to email and demand this nonsense be stopped.

    If we can't do it, neither should Congress.

    It's well known that the best way to get rich is to get elected.

    Now we know why.

    We should throw all their asses in jail.

    All the American politicians are corrupt it's the "Good Old Boy" system, they can't play unless they're corrupt. That's why we have to vote them all out of office and never let any of them have a second term. The longer a politician stays in office the more corrupt he becomes. VOTE THE BUMS OUT!

    I rarely agree with you on issues, but this is common ground that we share. This is the best news I've heard in a long time!

    This is about as corrupt as it comes. Pelosi, Bachus, Boehner...and probably MANY others are finally out of the darkness. NOW we see why the hell they aren't getting anything done. They're too busy talking to Bernanke and calling their traders. :evil:

    I've already seen that on the Senate floor. Haven't you seen her tongue her cronies for votes acting like a Beauty Queen?
