Subject: File Number S7-33-10: Whistleblower Award Program

December 7, 2010

Dear Ms. Murphy

I just signed a petition saying:

"More whistleblowing about corporate crimes could have made the foreclosure crisis and economic meltdown less severe. Whistleblowers should never be forced or engouraged to take their concerns to their potentially corrupt bosses first: Those who go directly to the government deserve the strongest rewards and protections allowed by law."

go after BOA and all the big banks and Wallstreet people who do not care about the economic health of our nation. Make them accountable to us, the people, and take away the possibility of big bonuses to folks whose greed brought this country to its knees in the last 3 years.
