To the and Exchange Commission,

We cannot have a financial system that allows financial advisors to put
their interests ahead of their customers, particularly those who worked
hard all their lives to accumulate retirement savings.

Financial advisors should be working hard to increase the value of
their customers' investments and not lining their own pockets with bad
advice, hidden fees and other things that drain the holdings of senior

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.


Mr. Larry Le Starge
