    Hi Brother Chuck Schroeder:

    HR.1148 has been introduced as of January 26th. I would think it has a fair chance of passing since it has about 250 co-sponsors. Curious though that neither John Boehner or Nancy Pelosi signed on? Then these two bills will have to go through the compromise process. We all know what that is: finger pointing, finger poking, he said, she said, they won't, we won't and in the end they won't because it is not in their best interest!

    Right now, members of Congress can make personal investment decisions based on confidential information they get in the course of regulating industries and doing their work.

    It's kind of unbelievable that this isn't already illegal. President Obama wants to make it illegal once and for all - no one should profit from inside information about the very businesses they're supposed to be regulating.

    Today, the Democratic leadership in the Senate voted to move forward on a bill to extend to Congress the same strict rules that apply to anyone else whose job gives them access to sensitive information about businesses. This legislation is expected to pass the Senate with bipartisan support later this week.

    But Republicans in the House have yet to move on it.

    There aren't a lot of good reasons to disagree with this bill. So the question here isn't how many people we have to persuade, but simply how loudly we can speak up to prevent the House Republicans from dodging this issue.

    Say you support the President on banning insider trading in Congress.


    I approve this message.

    Gingrich decided Romney was fair game. He chose to pick a fight with Romney and then wants sympathy because he is getting carpet bombed? I certainly don't want a sniveling crybaby in the White House. Gingrich's character is defined by his broken marriage vows.
