Small business startup and investors will not benefit from any additional red tape proposed by the SEC. The fundraising process is already a daunting enough endeavor. It is vital to let the free market and its "invisible hand" function organically.
By introducing cutthroat bans the SEC will be directly responsible for destroying thousands of potential entrepreneurs from building the US economy and their American dream. "Money goes where it is treated best" Prioritize that is treated best in the United States, as it used to be.
