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 investors' money 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.
The main problem I have with all of this, is the fact that the food my family and I are eating is potentially dangerous to our health. I do not want to eat genetically modified food, and everything that is genetically modified NEEDS to be labeled. It is disgusting that chemicals and other substances are banned in other countries because of their adverse side effects, and the United States still uses them. You are poisoning all of us and I will not stand for it any longer.
Thank you for considering my comment.
