    Being the cynic I am I always think that anything that has broad bipartisan support because I know that it means they are out to screw people over. Turns out the new law against insider trading is no exception, it will let Congress get away with more by making it more difficult to organize opposition to last minute additions to laws by making disclosure of those laws potentially illegal.

    Never trust a politician who wants to help you.
