Dear members of the Securities and Exchange Commission:
The political system is rigged against us, the workers! The laws that have been changed or loosened have caused the economic problems we face not, yet we are punished for the problems we did not create! The Very Wealthy are richer then they have been in 60 or more years, yet we work all our lives and put money toward our retirement Some in congress want to take it from us or make profit from our money we put in. The 401K' were devastated
after the T.A.R.P.funds were given away and we, our children and grandchildren will have to pay for it into the future. The powers that are pushing damaging legislation that WE the People know were written not by congress but Alec lobbyists to help the Companies that the workers built for them and then thrown away like trash to fend for ourselves so they can make more enormous profits then they already make. And what happens when there is high unemployment the Gov. revenue is smaller and we pay higher taxes then some of these Corporations and some very wealthy individuals that we are now finding that they hide the money overseas that they made from in profit from all the workers in this country
that gave them such wealth, How materialistic!
But you can be sure if this continues and these companies become so powerful that nothing will be able to stop them and if you know anything about history, some leaders that rule like will do away with their enemies, so even you could be at risk!
I am writing to urge the SEC to issue a rule requiring publicly traded corporations to publicly disclose all their political spending.
Both shareholders and the public must be fully informed as to how much the corporation spends on politics and which candidates are being promoted or attacked. Disclosures should be posted promptly on the SEC's web site.
Thank you for considering my comment.
