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."

If it wasnt for whistleblowers, many of our reforms would have never happened. America is a country of change, of progress and reform. We get better when our problems are brought to light. Capping or stopping whistleblowing altogether would stop America. Dont stop America. Dont make America a stagnant country, and doom us to completely fail.
