September 17, 2008

I have never written an email to any of my government officials until now.....I am uterly sick! How can you allow millions of investors to be effectively robbed of our life savings?

Please reinstate the UPTICK RULE.

Please change the "mark to market" accounting rules.

Please stop the bleeding.....
