Congress OK’s a bill legalizing Insider Trading FOR THEM, and Obama SIGNS IT!
As if congress hasn’t fucked Americans enough, it seems Obama has once again signed a law that gutted the reporting requirements originally included in the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge (STOCK) Act.
And before you come to the POTUS defense as many of you seem to jump to, let me say something! No I don’t blame Obama alone for this betrayal and blatant abuse of authority, but I I do blame him for not stopping it and signing that paper placed on his desk! It doesn’t become law until the president signs it!
Before these changes were made the STOCK Act required congressional staffers to disclose their finances to the public to help ensure they were not engaging in corrupt practices.
While preventing corrupt practices seems to be a good idea, President Obama and Congress decided that congressional staffers should be able to escape transparency. Surprised?
So why we were fighting each other on if equality is meant for all of us or just a superior select few, this happened,
🚨”Obama signed legislation Monday that rolled back a provision of the STOCK Act that required high-ranking federal employees to disclose their financial information online.
The White House announced Monday that the president had signed S. 716, which repealed a requirement of the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge (STOCK) Act requiring the disclosure, which had previously been delayed several times by Congress.”🇺🇸
You never heard of this political project to reinstate corruption incentives? Don’t be surprised.
“Both chambers of Congress quickly — and near silently — approved the repeal legislation at the end of last week by unanimous consent, just before heading home to their districts.”
That’s right. Unanimous consent to fuck Americans once more and not one wanted to put their backstabbing treacherous name down as openly supporting corruption while supporting corruption. And now it’s to late, Obama and congress have made it the law of the land!
