The likelihood that withdrawals from a Roth IRA will someday be taxed is infinitesimal. Politicians won't be able to do it...

Oh, I'm not so sure about that. We have many intelligent politicians, note I did not say "statesmen", that are losing sleep on how to take our earned wealth, Roth IRA included.


They wouldn't get away with taxing a Roth IRA. It would be a political death sentence.

If you disagree, that's fine. I'm not going to argue about it.
