This week, Texas Congressman Dan Crenshaw was on the All American Savage Show discussing Congress and their ability to trade individual stocks even though they may have inside information on which stocks will be doing well (also known as insider trading).
Crenshaw said, “I think it’d be fine if you wanted to ban individual stock trading…Notice I said ‘individual,’…as opposed to ETF’s [exchange-traded funds]…I’m kinda neutral on it.”
While Crenshaw may have said he’s neutral on the subject, the phrasing of his next comments say otherwise.
“If you want only billionaires…to run for Congress…then keep making sure that we can’t raise our pay,” he continued, “that we can’t get a housing stipend, that we have to…pay rent in two different places. That’s fine, if that’s what you want to support, but just keep in mind that no one will run for Congress because you have no way to better yourself.”
As Lauren Witzke said on social media, “The American Government was designed for ordinary Americans to run and hold office. It’s a blatant lie that you have to reap additional financial benefits or be a millionaire to hold public office. What a cancer Crenshaw is.”
