Dear Members of the Securities and Exchange Commission:

It's long past time to end  political spending by corporations.

American citizens are individuals, not corporations.  Our vote is as an individual, not a corporation, therefore, corporate money should not even be allowed.  AND, individual donation amounts MUST have a maximum....maybe $5000.00?
Campaigning limited to 6 months also.  This is waaay out of control and not government by, of & for the people! Politicians spend their time trying to get re-elected rather than doing their jobs.

Thank you for considering my comment.
