Dear Members of the Securities and Exchange Commission:
Do you really think it is all right for the sickeningly wealthy 1 - 2% to tell the other 99% what they can and cannot do? Isn't it enough that we work ourselves sick for their profits? Do you really think it is all right for them to own Congress, too??
It's long past time to end secret political spending by corporations.
So I strongly support the SEC issuing a rule in the near future that would require publicly traded corporations to publicly disclose all their spending on political activities.
Both shareholders and the public deserve to know how much a given corporation spends on politics (directly and through intermediaries), and which candidates are being promoted or attacked.
Thank you for considering my comment.
