    Re lawmakers and trading

    Personally I don’t think they or their immediate circles should be trading individual stocks and should be limited to index funds and the like. They have too much say when it comes to the economy and the stock market, it creates a conflict of interest even without “insider knowledge”

Mostly my point was that both that and the Pelosi story make for fun articles from propagandist newspapers while the "mainstream media" mostly just ignored them because, for the vast majority of the country, they're non-stories.
    That totally fits.

    Yeah to Jason, I’d be okay with index funds too, but politicians really need to cut ties from individual company stocks and their personal companies. If your stocks and businesses are just too precious for you to let go or at least step away during the time you’re in office, then maybe you shouldn’t run for public office.

    This is not only directed at Pelosi and the dems, but also Trump and republicans. This should be a bi or nonpartisan thing!

    Is this really a non story? Am I over reacting? Maybe. If you guys are happy with lesser of the two evil or a least worse system, great. But I can’t help but over react about this.

    Capitol police has demonstrated that it’s possible to hold back and not be too brutal as long as leadership instruct them so... according to latest report!

    So all we need now is to have capitol police patrolling our neighborhoods and regular cops on Capitol Hill then we’re all set.

    Bernie stealing a woman's work. Again. Nowhere does he say that this was Hillary's proposal in 2016.

    You're so funny dude... making everything about Bernie and Hillary!

    Hillary is gone. Bernie likely won't ever be president because he's too old. Need to move forward dude.

    BTW, did Obama ever mention that it should've been called Romneycare? That's probably what they should've called it so that Republicans would sound stupid trying to repeal Romneycare later...

    Don't be so picky about giving credit. What's more important is getting things done!
