Subject: File Number S7-07-18: Stop financial advisers from sapping Americans' retirement savings
From: Rebecca & Robert McDowell

Securities and Exchange Commission

To the and Exchange Commission,

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.

Close this loophole and ensure a higher standard than the currently proposed rule. Hold anyone who gives financial advice genuinely accountable for helping everyday Americans choose the best investments for us, our families, and our future. We don't need or want a standard that just makes our brokers and bankers richer.


Mrs. Rebecca & Mr. Robert McDowell
