To the and Exchange Commission,

Americans deserve fair and ethical assistance in determining how to
manage their meager financial assets. Greed, unfortunately, is no
stranger to some financial "experts" so that they can line
their own pockets with the hard won savings of older Americans. When a
major loophole is allowed it will be utilized to bilk those of us who
need every extra dollar to survive.

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. Pat Clark
