Fire your financial adviser, one only needs to emulate the greatest investors on the planet. Buffet should hang his head in shame when comparing his return to the true masters of investing.

Members of Congress trade in companies while making laws that affect those same firms - The Washington Post

"Almost one in every eight trades 5,531 intersected with legislation. The 130 lawmakers traded stocks or bonds in companies as bills passed through their committees or while Congress was still considering the legislation. The party affiliation of the lawmakers was almost evenly split between Democrats and Republicans, 68 to 62."
