Comments on: Insider trading another reason to Occupy Congress http://blogs.reuters.com/breakingviews/2011/11/14/insider-trading-another-reason-to-occupy-congress/ Mon, 26 Sep 2016 03:26:00 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Sumflow http://blogs.reuters.com/breakingviews/2011/11/14/insider-trading-another-reason-to-occupy-congress/comment-page-1/#comment-8693 Wed, 07 Dec 2011 08:41:21 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/breakingviews/?p=7524#comment-8693 The SEC said in today’s hearing that delayed reporting of securities transactions by congress, defeats, obstructs, and impairs its use as timely evidence. This is why no Congress people were busted under the current law. If this STOCK act with long 90 day reporting times passes, it will just confirm what the people already suspect about a double standard for congressional insider trading.

There are TOO MANY unintended perks for the office of a Congressman that can keep them from considering what they were sent there to do everyday.
*
This Insider trading “Racket” has to be stopped, transparency is NOT ENOUGH because that isn’t a strong enough measure to dissuade some. ALL securities owned by a Congressperson have to be placed in a blind trust, OR else simply sold that will keep things clean and may prevent the wrong people away from running for office.
*
This is too much, with their insurance benefits, flight benefits, campaign funds they can keep after leaving office, special parking, Gym Privileges, Dinning Hall Pass, SLEEPING IN THEIR OFFICES, and Insider Trading?????
*
It’s CRAZY!!!!!!

Why do they think that they are different than us? Oh wait a sec, they exempted themselves from Obamacare too didn’t they.

I sincerely believe that the concept of a lifetime politician never came into our founders thoughts because they figured that everyone (from then on into the future) would act honorably.

If they thought that eventually we would have a “ruling class” from life long politicians, they would have said something in the Constitution. They never figured that men without honor would be able to get a foot in the door on the hill. They also did not forsee men without honor “running” the country. Lord have mercy on our souls…
