To the and Exchange Commission,

Americans of all ages, and particularly seniors who worked hard for
their money, deserve to know they can trust their financial advisors...
as much as we can trust our doctors. The government must not give
unscrupulous actors a way to "legally" steal our money.

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.
