This bill should be called the "destroy jobs bill". It specifically cuts jobs at emerging companies by allowing them to completely eliminate any financial controls over their activities (anybody remember Enron, Worldcom, Madoff and other crooked financial dealings). Congress wants to allow companies--especially Chinese companies--to steal your money through issuing phony financial statements and then selling stock. Obviously the Chinese lobbyists are supporting this one. Kill this ridiculous bill.
