The SEC has selfishly catered to deep pockets of special interest groups and greedy stock exchanges (who care only about high volatility and trading volume to make them money) exposed our country to financial terrorism and to greedy foreign banks bear raiding our financial markets. The SEC under Mr. Cox has made it easier for our enemies to attack our financial system and to loot my and other veterans life savings.

I have fought two wars but never thought that I would be forced to fight the SEC in order to protect my life savings.

The SEC must correct the mistakes and reinstate the uptick rule IMMEDIATELY This is insane to keep protecting greedy short sellers who loot our life savings.
