The wannabe aristocrats of the House of Representatives are terribly upset that the Securities and Exchange Commission wants to hold them to the same standards as other investors, and have launched a suit to be given an exemption from the law regarding insider trading, because don’t you people know who they are!?!

John “Crybaby” Boehner through the House’s lawyers claimed in 2011 that an investigation of Congressional criminality is outside the purview of the executive branch due to separation of powers. Even though Congress passed the STOCK Act, which is supposed to prevent Congresspeople from benefiting directly from inside knowledge of legislation, but it doesn’t (apparently) stop them from sharing out information to allow others to benefit…and of course, they wouldn’t be compensated indirectly from these actions, would they..?
