Eliminate Eric Cantor’s Insider Trading Loophole
Sign the Petition to Support a Strong STOCK Act
Both houses of Congress passed the STOCK Act, the bill that would stop congressional insider trading.
But the version that passed in the House is substantially weaker than the version that passed in the Senate. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) did his campaign funders on Wall Street a huge favor by including a loophole for lobbyists and hedge fund managers who trade on congressional insider information.
We can defeat Cantor’s loophole, which would allow Wall Street’s minions to prowl the halls of Congress in search of insider info that can be turned to cash on the stock market.
Show your support for a strong STOCK Act.
Sign the petition to demand that Congress eliminate Cantor’s Wall Street insider trading loophole.
We, the undersigned, call on Congress to send to the President’s desk a strong STOCK Act. Reject Rep. Eric Cantor’s version, and oppose his loophole that would allow Wall Street minions to prowl the halls of Congress in search of inside information. To restore confidence in government, we need Congress to pass sweeping ethics legislation without loopholes carved out for special interests.
