Revisiting Eric Cantor’s STOCK Act Hokey Pokey


For those of you that may have forgotten this little bit of underhanded trading by Eric Cantor, Sara for America has posted a nice refresher course:

To start, you will need a piece of important legislation drafted to make members of Congress, their families and staffers adhere to the same standards as other Americans. In this case, the STOCK Act;  a bill that prohibited insider trading by Congress based on non-public information gained in their role as lawmakers.  Both Democrats and Republicans agreed that passing this law would help restore confidence in government, because Congress was making money hand over fist by exempting themselves from securities laws applied to the rest of us.  (I know, that’s horrible, isn’t it?)

Step One
Listen to all the pros and cons about the STOCK Act so you can decide how best to approach it without angering your base (that would be Wall Street).

You put your ear in, you take your ear out, you put your ear back in and you shake it all about. You do the Hokey Pokey and you turn yourself around, that’s what it’s all about!

Step Two
Pay particular attention to what your Wall Street buddies, and other deep pocket lobbyists think you ought to do.  (Pay particular attention– with hand outstretched.)

You put your hand in, you take your hand out, you put your hand back in and you shake it all about! You do the hokey pokey and your turn yourself around, that’s what it’s all about!

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
