Behind the Poll:
Nancy Pelosi has been facing widespread opposition from within Congress to her defense of lawmakers trading stocks while in office. She declared that “We are a free-market economy. They should be able to participate in that.”
However, Pelosi’s family saw their wealth increase throughout the pandemic, which might be a reason for her defense of trading while in office. Radical Democrat lawmaker Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez pushed back, saying: “There is no reason members of Congress should hold and trade individual stock when we write major policy and have access to sensitive information.”
Do you think Nancy Pelosi has shown she’s a hypocrite and not fit for office, or is she right to defend trading stocks while in office?
