Subject: Suspend Mark to Market! 4-573

March 10, 2009

As a concerned citizen I am writing to request that the Mark to Market rule be suspended. Even if it is temporary, it is what our economic system needs right now. The taxpayers are bailing out banks with hundreds & hundreds of billions of dollars. This costs nothing! You can stop the madness of giving the banks loans, and save or use that money for better purposes.

It is a smart thing to do. Please, please change it. America needs your assistance.
