Not at all surprising. All governments are corrupt, and the U.S. government is right up there with the best of them.
ZOMG, this is so crooked. Members of Congress have exempted themselves from insider trading laws. The stories of crooked dealings in this article are appalling.
Although it would be excessively gullible to think that either side has clean hands on this issue, there is a partisan asymmetry to the reporting of this story that is carefully masked by omitting party affiliations and conveniently piling on the one subject who doesn't conform to the pattern.
The fact congress has excluded themselves from laws they make is not a new idea .. it is as old as congress itself and has happened many times .. for instance - congressional members can write bad checks with no consequences.
