GILLIBRAND: I'm Kirsten Gillibrand, and I believe that members of Congress should play by the exact same rules as families like yours. That's why I took on my own party to end automatic Congressional pay raises. I was the first member to publish my Senate meetings, requests for funding, and personal income taxes online. And even though it wasn't popular in Congress, I just passed a new law that for the first time bans members of Congress from insider trading. I approve this message, because fixing our economy starts with cleaning up the way Washington works.
