This one takes the cake! No, not a Martha Stewart decorated with dandelions from your yard cake, but this one really tops all others in the ‘screwed by Congress again’ category.
You may remember Martha Stewart went to jail. Five months in a federal prison for avoiding a loss of $45,673 by selling stock she owned after receiving material, nonpublic information from her broker, according to Wiki. She was charged, convicted and served time in addition to paying a $30,000 fine.
So why is Congress exempt from this same type of activity?????
Watch the whole thing. Then call your congressmen and insist they sign on as co-sponsors to H.R. Bill 1148, the Stock Act. I’ll bet you $100 they never even heard of it. Make it your job that they do.
