Should there be a law preventing US House members (and senators) from using inside information for investments?
A recent business journal study showed congressmen had an annual return on stock investments 7% better that the general investor. Democrats out performed the public by 9% annually. Republican outperformed the public by 2%. There are currently no laws against legislators using non-public information when making investment decision (though it is illegal for private companies and individuals). Should there be such a law?
