Subject: File No. 4-637

I find it unconscionable that corporations are permitted to re-purpose money paid by citizens for goods and services towards political so-called "speech" which was not intended to be a result of the decision to purchase the goods or services in the first place.

For this to be allowed to be done IN SECRET smacks of plutocratic conspiracy.

If allowed at all, political contributions by publicly traded corporations should CERTAINLY be required to be publicly disclosed.

Your JOB, SEC, is requires that you see to making this the case.
