Demand Congress Pass the Ban Conflicted Trading Act

This week we learned that Senator Rand Paul failed to disclose his wife’s February 2020 investment in Gilead Sciences Inc, many months before the company received emergency use authorization to sell their antiviral Covid-19 treatment.

Last year, multiple senators collectively dumped tens of MILLIONS of dollars in stock following a closed-door Congressional coronavirus briefing in January 2020, well before the stock market drop in March which harmed many Americans.

We cannot allow our elected officials to take advantage of inside knowledge for their own financial benefit.

Their job is to represent the interests of the public, not themselves.

Please join AOC, Robert Reich, and DFA by signing on to demand Congress pass the Ban Conflicted Trading Act, legislation that will keep members of Congress from using their privileged status to profit off trading individual stocks.
