Ever wonder why people who appear to be rational would spend hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars of their own money to get elected to a job that pays $174,000/year in either the Senate or House?
A previous study on Senate members’ returns yielded similar findings:
The folks in both houses of Congress are just very, very good at picking stock investments.
Thieving bastards, able to legally use inside information for their own benefit, unlike any other market participant.
Does that help clarify why things are the way they are?
And why I suggest you read this classic?
And why voting is worth exactly gatz?
