Dear members of the Securities and Exchange Commission:
Given the amount of influence corporations are currently allowed to exert over Congress with massive political spending, it is vital that we begin working to curtail such unfair leverage in the democratic process. And the first step toward achieving this must at least require that said spending is made transparent to all American citizens. If we are to take a step in the right direction in efforts to restore fair democracy by the people, then we need to access to all the figures on corporate political spending. Please put forth legislation to make this happen.
