Insider Trading on 60 Minutes
60 Minutes ran an interesting but disturbing segment on Insider Trading in congress. We’ve heard about it before how congress can accept bribes in the form of insider trading stock tips. Something they threw Martha Stewart in jail for. Only it’s legal for members of congress. They also showed very disturbing clips about how congressmen can personally benefit from special deals in their own riding. Like I said, we’ve heard it before but it’s hard to believe and it’s only getting worse. No one wants to deal with it. When Michael Moore talked about Senator Dodd's insider trading in his movie Captialism a Love Story Democrats told him to cool it. The struggle continues.
