One of the many corrupt politicians in Washington DC is now making a stand against corruption.
Massachusetts Senator (Lie-a-lotta) – Elizabeth Warren claims that politicians should not be allowed to trade in stocks.
Banning lawmakers from trading stocks should be a key priority for lawmakers, writes Elizabeth Warren in an opinion column in The New York Times.
“Whether you’re a Republican senator or the Democratic speaker of the House, it is obvious to the American people that they should not be allowed to trade individual stocks and then vote on laws that affect those companies. I have the strongest plan and the only bipartisan bill in the Senate to get it done,” she writes.
“For years, Americans have identified corrupt government officials as a top concern. And they’re right: to tackle the urgent challenges we face — climate change, income inequality, systemic injustice — we must root out corruption.”
Warren is right in that corrupt politicians in DC should not be able to trade in the markets with insider information and the ability to change the markets that they have.
Warren also says that to fight inflation companies must stop jacking up prices and stop making profits.
Warren is not really the best person to be promoting honesty in Congress. She spent years claiming she was an American Indian which likely helped her obtain a lucrative position at Harvard. Later it was discovered that she was no Indian at all.
