- Congress hardly witnesses progressives and far-right Republicans coming together on anything, but three polarizing representatives are finding common ground over an unlikely but significant matter: congressional stock investments.
- Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) of the Progressive Caucus, Matt Gaetz (R-FL) of the Freedom Caucus, and Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA), co-chair of the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus, introduced the Bipartisan Restoring Faith in Government Act on Tuesday. Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-IL) has signed onto the bill as well.
