    Something is Rotten In Denmark...I mean Washington

    Members of H of R have "abnormally high returns" on their stock investments. Members of the Senate, are even higher. Sounds to me like a bit of insider trading going on.

    I refuse to believe that people in power would use their positions for personal gain. Our elected officials just wouldn't do something like that.
