Subject: Comment on File Number 4-637

Dear members of the Securities and Exchange Commission:

I am writing to urge the SEC to issue a rule requiring publicly traded corporations to publicly disclose all their political spending. On a daily basis as part of being responsible "citizens". The Supreme Court in their ignorance and being bought off by these same corporations turned its back on 100 years of precident morphing corporation into individuals. Well all individuals have to and the campaigns they support must provided the information. In this election, the SEC must require full and complete disclosure of all donations (transparency immediately on a website that voters can go to daily and see contributions). This takes mere hours to set up and minimal costs to maintain. Corporate taxes to the government well spent.

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.

Thank you for considering my comment.
