To the and Exchange Commission,

As a retired person that worked hard, lived within my means and saved
for retirement I counted on the advice of professional financial
advisers.  The so called 'fiduciary rule' needs to be maintained and
enforced to continue to protect ALL hard working Americans and not
allow those that provide advice and guidance to push certain products.
Don't you think that by doing so those advisers are in a conflict of
interest position?  Shouldn't those advisers actually work for those
that seek their advice?

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. Lee Odell
