Securities and Exchange Comm.

Dear Securities and Exchange Comm.,

I’m writing to urge the commission’s prompt approval of rules requiring public disclosure of political spending by publicly-held companies. Disclosure is vital to the SEC’s responsibility to ensure that investors have the information they need to make sound decisions about when and where to put their money. Shareholders also have a right to know how companies in their investment portfolios are investing that money, particularly when the spending falls outside the company’s normal business activity.
Today's New York times reports that the US is 17 out of 17 of the richest countries in mortality rate for almost all ages groups until Americans are over 75! We get these kinds of results because big money that does not care floods campaigns with bogus ideas. And this is just health care and public health. We loose in so many areas when big money controls elections secretly.
Thank you for considering my comment.
