Subject: Short Selling Regulation

Please explain why the SEC continues to allow short sellers to attack the US stock market unregulated. I expected change with the new administration, yet we still have no uptick rule, there are ultra short ETFs driving stock prices into the ground, and there seems to be no new enforcement against naked short selling.

Your job should be to protect American retail investors, not to continue to provide protection to short sellers.
