Pelosi’s resistance to banning congressional stock trades is made of the same stuff as Biden’s lack of interest in ethics reform. 2021 was a moment in history when the US needed to respond to Trump’s corruption with sweeping anticorruption reform. Don’t waste THIS moment too!

Scoop: @GOPLeader McCarthy and other GOP leaders discussed plans as recently as this past weekend on campaigning on the idea of limiting stock ownership in Congress. If GOP take the House,I’m told leaders are aiming to bring stock legislation to the floor

These are just top appointees and nominees to Senate-confirmed positions. The list doesn't even include presidential appointees and noncareer (politically appointed) senior executives who don't need Senate-confirmation. As they say, "personnel IS policy." Sigh.
