I believe the SEC should have a law that requires publicly held companies to disclose their political spending and contributions, both to individual candidates, and PACs and Super PACs.

The reasons are many but come down to trust and transparency, which are sorely lacking. As is trust both in corporations, financial firms, and the government. I believe the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. Also, I worry that the continued influence of money in politics and our government will eventually mean the end of our democracy, and our financial system.
