Video: The movement to ban congressional stock trading
Issue One, National Taxpayers Union (NTU), and the Project On Government Oversight (POGO) hosted a conversation with Representatives Abigail Spanberger (D-VA) and Chip Roy (R-TX) — as well as former Representatives Brian Baird (D-WA) and Zach Wamp (R-TN) — about the movement to ban congressional stock trading that is making headlines and generating bipartisan support across the country. The discussion examined why an overwhelming majority of Americans support prohibiting members of Congress, their spouses, and their children from buying and selling stocks while in office, and what Congress can do to address this issue.
The conversation was moderated by Warren Rojas from Business Insider, and was followed by a Q&A with Dylan Hedtler-Gaudette of POGO, Andrew Lautz from NTU, and Camila DeChalus of Business Insider.
