To the and Exchange Commission,

Due to the bankruptcy of the corporation  that I worked for for forty
years and ensuing loss of their retirement plan my personal 401 and
savings are my retirement.

It is just insane that financial advisors not be legally required to
have a fiduciary responsibility to put their clients interests first
and above all others, especially themselves or their companies.  Hold
anyone who gives financial advice genuinely accountable for helping
everyday Americans choose the best investments for us, our families,
and our future

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. Douglas Ross
