To the and Exchange Commission,

As a retired teacher, I've worked long and hard to secure my financial
future and have had a trusted financial adviser to help guide my
investments. All people should be able to implicitly trust their
financial adviser to help them make the wisest investments at the
appropriate stages of their work life.

You are responsible for ensuring that ordinary taxpayers like me don't
get shagged by hidden fees and unscrupulous tax advisers. Do your job.

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.

Don't let us down.

Audrey Ledesma
