All the theives are lobbying the SEC to be allowed to continue stealing from the public. Seventy years was all the "test" that was needed to demonstrate the effectiveness of the uptick rule. A meaningful uptick (more than a penny) needs to be reimplemented at once. If not, then congress must force it with legislation. Is the SEC really that corrupt that congress must take action?
