I prefer the Roth IRA because it is less risky. This is because I know what the tax consequences will be.
This is really a funny statement. Let me know what your crystal ball says about mean-tested social security.
It is a very serious statement. The likelihood that withdrawals from a Roth IRA will someday be taxed is infinitesimal. Politicians won't be able to do it.
Social security is a joke. I wish they would just scrap the whole idea, but I know it will never happen.
