Subject: File Number S7-07-18: Stop financial advisers from sapping Americans' retirement savings

To the and Exchange Commission,

People work hard for their money and expect to trust those in business of financial advice to provide fair and accurate information, not information that is tilted to making the advisor a profit without the client's benefit.  It is tough enough for the average person to fight an individual but to add a corporation behind it, whether the advisory firm or the product being sold, it grossly unfair. We want to know what is wrong with our country, then this is it. Unfair practices that aren't regulated keeps the poor poor and the rich getting richer. Not the America I know, not the America we can be proud of.

I'm counting on you to make a stronger rule that closes the loophole.
Americans who've worked hard to save for retirement deserve peace of mind about their financial security.
