To the and Exchange Commission,

As a volunteer tax preparer, I have encountered a lack of financial literacy among my clients. Until financial literacy is more frequently taught - in schools, by employers, and at retirement - my clients can use all the help they can get. I also believe it is the proper role of government to regulate and protect a fair market when it is so complex that consumers cannot reasonably become experts, and therefore apply the principle of "caveat emptor."

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.

This would also be a good time to re-activate the apparently long-dormant Anti-Trust Division, and bring back some good old-fashioned American competition.
