Insider Trading Is Not Illegal for Members of Congress

11/23/2011

As far as I can tell, WordPress doesn’t allow embedding of this video format, but I highly encourage you all to watch this CBS News video about how corporate interests give members of Congress special information about company stocks in exchange for legislation that serves the corporation’s interests.

Conveniently, Congress has also passed laws that makes this practice legal.

    This is pathetic. Send Martha Stewart to jail but let Capitol Hill do the same thing for a profit. CRAZY!

    I know your Canadian, but Happy Thanksgiving for us to the south.

      I know! Definitely a double-standard when you’re jailing Martha Stewart for behaviour of which nearly all of Congress partakes.

      Happy Thanksgiving, Frank :)
