In the least surprising news you’ll read all day, a new report confirms that (mostly Democrat) members of Congress continued to outperform the stock market - a feat that the overwhelming majority of hedge funds fail to do.
According to Unusual Whales, which assembled the report:
Nevertheless, this is pretty incredible, that Democrats dominated their Republican counterparts significantly. Let’s break it down by member:
Over a decade ago, Congress passed the “STOCK Act” as an attempt to crack down on Congressional insider trading, which was completely legal before it. One key provision of the Act requires members of Congress to disclose any stock trades made by themselves, spouses, or a dependent child. At least 78 members of Congress have been identified in violation of the Act - and there’s not much consequences they can possibly face, outside of a standard $200 fine.
Even a literal slap on the wrist would be a harsher punishment.
