Today got an email from Jon Ossoff, one of the Georgia senators. Here’s what he said..
The Ban Congressional Stock Trading Act will require all members of Congress, their spouses, and dependent children to place their stock portfolios into a blind trust — ensuring they cannot use inside information to influence their personal stock trades and make a profit.
Members who violate rules would be fined the amount of their entire Congressional salary.
My comment: Wish they’d take their $150,000 a year pension. That would really work.
Back to Jon: A majority of Republicans, Democrats, and Independents AGREE with a Congressional stock trading ban.
Me again: No more sneaking around like that Georgia senator David Perdue, (who is now running for GA Governor),* did when the country was in crisis. While everyone else was voting he was trading stocks so he would gain more wealth. Cost him his seat, just loved those campaign ads they had against him…
Can you imagine what he’ll do to the Georgia voting laws should he get in?? Can they get any worse??
They just should have a law stating black people can’t vote, that would cover their mission.
On another note..
He’s still fighting for US.. Must be a great feeling to know you were right after all the crap he took from folks saying he was a nut. I always believed you Al!
Great piece on CBS Morning showing his Tennessee farm and all he is doing to save the planet. Liked his comment, and I paraphrase,
WE cannot continue to use our sky as a sewer..
Check out Paramount Plus and see the clip, and let’s hope others do. We need to change for our future, and the future of our children.
*Running against Stacey Abrams, remember her – she got Georgia for Joe Biden.. Keep watching, will be fun.
