Certain things seem so obvious to me.   It’s not that I’m naive, but certain things are just the right thing to do.  Particularly, when Congress has an approval rating of 9%.

So why is there a problem with the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge Act, introduced by U.S. Rep. Tim Waltz, D-Minn., and pushed since 2006 by U.S. Rep. Louise Slaughter, D-N.Y., with limited success. The Act would label any trading by lawmakers or their staffs on legislative information as securities fraud and would require any trades of more than $1,000 to be reported within 90 days, among other restrictions.”

Maybe because the members of Congress think they’re better than the rest of us and that they’re above the law?

I just don’t get it.
