SEC Comment file 4-637
Dear Comment file 4-637,
Comment on File Number 4-637
To The Securities and Exchange Commission
Good day Gentleman and or Lady of the Securities and Exchange Commission, Today I am deeply concerned about the influence of corporate money on our electoral process.
In particular, I am appalled that, because of the Supreme Court's ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, publicly traded corporations can spend investor's money on political activity in secret.
I am writing to urge the Securities and Exchange Commission 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.
I believe that election should solely be to help the country make changes that help the country use the government funds to work making better ways in any difficulty section in issues that do not let the country progress. But not to take a seat just to be in the Senate or in other seat without doing nothing for the country and less not helping the people get the tools they need to move them forward making jobs and building or rebuilding the country where it needs it. Helping people get prepare for new jobs and other work. Educated them so they can fill the positions need it and they don't have to go to another state or country. Thank you, for considering my comment and reconsider my views.
