Congress takes on insider trading ... by Congress

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) - Is insider trading by members of Congress legal? How common is it? What's being done about it?

Congress itself is tackling those questions right now following an explosive report on 60 Minutes last month.

    They can start with the lobbyists and their insider trading. But nobody, but nobody, wants to go there. Republicans would rather try to demonize Democrats and get them thrown out of office. Republicans have had a hair out of place ever since Agnew and then Nixon resigned. They've been looking for revenge when there's none to be found, so they manufacture it.

    Kick them all out - if they can't follow ethics rules, kick their butts out and eventually we will get people in there that work for US - not themselves. We pay them a big salary - they should be honest.

    Why waste time on this when there is so much curruption being carried out by Obama and Holder?? That alone should keep them busy for years. Hopefully they end up in prison. Sharing a cell with Obama`s buddy Tony Rezko.

    They are all guilty of it, including Speaker Boehner.

    I can hardly wait to hear of the corruption by then speaker Dennis Hastert of Illinois.

    I would be willing to bet that Newt will always hold the all time record for ethics violations. Love that republican culture of corruption. (Not)

    See what I mean? Case in point. Conservatives are just itching to throw a Democratic President and Cabinet members out of DC.

    Must be why Newt Gingrich has a growing lead in the early primary states. It's the end times.
