    This is what happens when the government makes laws for themselves. It is disgusting and everyone in Congress does it and are laughing at the American people while doing it. Our politicians act in their own personal interests first, the interests of their large donors second, and the American people they are there to serve a far distant 3rd. Romney, Obama, Mcain, Pelosi, Ryan, and everyone else is the same. Stop buying into the BS.

    Now, it wasn't illegal at the time and people on both sides of the aisle were participants in activities such as these, but it just doesn't seem right does it?
    This has been even been debunked by far left blogs

    Ready to talk about the real issues and Obama's record when you're ready libs. Any day now.

    Like I said, you didn't have to sit in private congress meetings to know that it was a bad time to be in the stock market.

    You yourself said it wasn't illegal. Do you know what your 401k sold and purchased for you yesterday?

    Didn't think so.

    I wasn't aware you knew me so well, friend! What you have to laugh at is when in my OP I clearly posted that I'm disgusted by unethical behavior by either side of government. In fact, if you did even the slightest bit of reading of most anything I've ever posted here, you would see that I try to look at everything from a viewpoint that is unbiased as it can be.

    Now, I'll give you the fact that I read the article and maybe I also was guilty of not giving due diligence. The only difference is, when I got part of the story wrong I wasn't a prick about it. Have a nice day.

    I see your point but all my retirement funds in and out of my 403b are self directed. I will step back to say I found the article interesting and wanted others' opinions. I dislike immoral activity on either side of the aisle. My apologies to those I may have mislead into thinking I was presenting anything as fact instead of as a discussion point.

    I will also admit, even if its not directly related, that I myself would find it hard not to take advantage of a situation where I would be told specifically how NOT to lose a ton of money. My issue lies more with regulation and law that allows this type of activity to be possible in the first place.

    Right on the head of the nail with a 20 pound sledge hammer. Bearing a bumper sticker with any politican names on it just shouts out " I Am A Moron".
