Does it include Justices of the Supreme Court? Because if it does, expect it to be ruled unconstitutional!

I thought a law was already on the books declaring that insider trading was illegal. Martha did time for it. What's with the politicians, they need a law established "just for them"? Under the law, Pelosi should be doing time right now.

You know you're in a banana republic masquerading as constitutional when the power brokers exempt themselves from the most basic laws. Half the house and the senate should be in stocks on the mall subject to public ridicule. No wonder they can go live in the most expensive area in the entire country as well as maintain residences in their home states on 160k/yr and still come out as multimillionaires when their terms are up. They just steal it. Legally
