To the and Exchange Commission,

I'm just a few years away from retirement, and hearing that financial
"advisors" could not be held accountable for the type of
investment advice they give out (sometimes to the detriment of the
person they are advising) is horrific. Seniors don't have the time to
make up money that they may invest poorly just because an advisor wants
to make a commission.  The advisor needs to put himself in the position
of his client and offer up the absolute best advice that is suited to
the person's situation on life.

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.
