I for one make about $26000 per year and my retirement savings are $2000 IRA, $1000 SEP, and about $6000 into a non-IRA investment account, for a total of $9000 per year....>>

I'm surprised to hear that lots of people share their personal finance information with you. Most people keep this type of personal information very private.

And, that really wasn't what I said. There is no question that _some_ low income people are able to save money. But _most_ don't. And I dare say that you are not supporting a wife and two kids on $26,000 while putting away $9000.
