Sen. Warren: Congress Should Be Banned from Trading Stocks

‘For all of my time in public life I have not owned individual stocks’


WARREN: “I have introduced legislation all along to say senators, folks in the House, people in the administration, cabinet officials, the president, the vice president, federal judges who sit for life, Supreme Court judges, members of the Fed, none of them should be able to trade in individual stocks, because no one should have to guess, well, did they make that decision in order to promote the public interest or in order to promote their own interest. That 's wrong and that trading should be banned.”
