Publicly traded corporations should disclose their political spending.   It seems fair.  As a citizen, my taxes support corporations by paying for their tax breaks and many other examples of corporate welfare.

So I believe that they should tell us who they are supporting in elections.  That way we can decide if we want to buy from them or invest in them, if political spending is important to us.
 We are a democracy - and democracy requires informed citizens.

Please return the rule to the unified agenda.  You should not have dropped it.

Thank you for considering my comment.
