    Being elected to Congress was never meant to be a stepping stone to greater riches. We need to return to the days when Insider Trading would land you in jail, and in order to serve in elective office, you had to agree to put your portfolio in lock down until the end of your public service. Those were the last days of honest government.

    You are all felons in this regard, as far as the people are concerned.
