JAFO sez:

<<I dislike quibbling with TMFPixy, but an important (IMO) caveat was omitted from his first sentence (and the last sentence, too).

"You cannot make annual contributions of up to $2K unless you have earned income from a job, unless you are married to a spouse who has earned income that qualfies for contribution to a spousal IRA.

LOL. Good catch. Quibble any time you want to for the sake of complete accuracy.
