I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for it to happen. Even if it did there would be plenty of outs.

She should have to return all profits she has made during her time in politics.

Yeah, she got hers and is exiting stage right.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday suggested that she will consider proposals banning members of Congress from trading stocks while in elective office, a sharp reversal from just a month ago when she adamantly defended the practice.

Good for her! When ya fuck up, don't double down like someone else we know. Make the change and move on. I have 0 respect for someone who never admits a mistake, and instead doubles down and ends up looking stupid.

Well, she's been doubling-down for many a year, she must have got tired.

In fact it was just a few months ago she was fine with it.....It sorta makes one curious as to what brought on the sudden change in direction.

The World Wonders.

She bought $30 Million in stock during The Pandemic investing in Big Tech and Big Pharma plus bought a $25 Million Mansion in Florida on her $200,000 salary. She is worth $120 Million.

To put that in perspective, after taxes it would take her over 1,000 years to accumulate that wealth on her salary. She is the queen of insider trading and now that she is ready to retire, what does it matter if she bans her colleagues from doing what she did her entire career?

It doesn't matter if she tried to skirt the law and had her husband do The Insider Trading on her behalf. It's still illegal.

She is just trying to cover her own tracks. Saying she is open doesn't mean anything will actually happen at all even after years of discussion. She is just making herself look good till she is gone is all it is.

Perlosi has never done anything unless it served her a personal purpose in making money or maintaining power. She cares nothing for anyone but herself.

So always assume everytime that bitch opens her mouths it's in only in her best interest.

You wrote about her paltry pay check, and I pointed out the facts. It is available to anybody, and I agree that our lawmakers should refrain while in office. Kudos to Nancy for seeing the fallacy of her ways. Give credit where it is due and concentrate on the real crook in your sphere--one Donald Tump.

Won't happen, end around is some sort of an XYZ fund to trade on as opposed to an individual stock. If their lips are moving they are lying.
