I am outraged that the Securities and Exchange Commission has dropped the rule requiring publicly traded corporations to disclose their political spending from the unified agenda.

As an investor in stocks, I think I have a right to know what companies spend on politics.  Why wouldn't the company want us to know? I can't imagine the reason is a good one!
