Recently, it has been revealed that Congress has been doing insider trading. In other words, they knew what stocks would go up or down because they were about to pass a law affecting the price of a particular kind of stock. They made millions by doing so and in the process make the stocks more expensive for others to buy.
All members of Congress have known this is happening and said nothing. You and I would go to jail for this, and Wall Street traders have gone to jail for this.
I would like to see Rep. Bill Owens and possible Republican contender Matt Doheny pledge to refute this system and work tirelessly to make it illegal.
Furthermore, they might get my support, by making themselves available 100 percent of the time Congress is not in session. They should be in their home district and listening to what the people want them to do. This would also possibly remove them from lobbyist influences in Washington.
