Good morning. Some members of Congress have strangely good timing when it comes to stock investments
The article is interesting because it casts light on a pervasive problem: Members of Congress profiting from their positions. But it misses the main point. The biggest problem is not their "access to information." It is their power to control the expenditure of public funds and therefore benefit certain industry sectors and/or specific companies. They write, sponsor and vote for the legislation that determines where all that money goes.
