Subject: Require disclosure of corporate spending in politics. 4-637

January 31, 2012

Securities and Exchange Commission

Dear Commission,

If the common man/woman making a living and paying taxes must, by law disclose every detail of their expenditures to either the IRS or any other entity that requests that information, then so should the corporations -- ESPECIALLY NOW THAT THEY ARE CONSIDERED (RULED) AS AN INDIVIDUAL(S)! Tell the Corporations to follow the same rules and laws everyone else must follow. Attorneys must report yearly their total incomes and donations BY LAW - make the Corporations do the same. Thank you - retired legal secretary Constance A. Ward
