I am not greedy or rich. How do you legislate greed in a free market country?
Free markets do not work. Period.
They end up in monopoly. Too much money turns most people into psychopaths.

I see no issue with this deal going thru. It's not the seated representative profiting, so it's not unethical. Real estate is really a bare bones industry anyways without much room for hanky-panky, so it's really clear cut to start with.

I don't know I'm not in Congress nor am I a democrat. Just an FYI though... A couple of years back a bill passed to end insider trading in Congress, it was signed and everything. A couple of months later the GOP repealed it.
