    Senate Passes Ban on Insider Trading

    The ban on insider trading in Congress is moving along legislatively.
    The Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge (STOCK) Act passed has passed in the Senate this evening by a vote of 96-3.
    Something that other people can go to prison for should be something that a Congressman can go to prison for too. They are not above the law. Kudos to the Senate for passing this bill.

    per the article: Sens. Jeff Bingaman, D-N.M., Richard Burr, R-N.C., and Tom Coburn, R-Okla., voted against the bill.

    Anybody with idea on their disagreement with such sensibly legislation?

    I have no idea, but the fact that Democrats and Republicans both overwhelmingly supported this legislation speaks for itself.
