Our current crop of politicians (both D and R) are as corrupt as the day is long. They govern for their own benefit with little if any concern for the good of the nation.

It's well past time for a serious session of housecleaning.

Yep, there are still plenty of people in Washington with insider stuff, and they can't seem to help themselves to the honey pot by getting into stocks for their own gains. I'd like to have a list of people up there who are doing this. The least they could do is to letting us into the action! But no, they aren't, so let's get rid of'em, I say.
