The stated purpose of the IRA and 401(k) is to provide middle and lower class earners a chance to save for retirement. The way it works is the government provides a tax break (this is, a subsidy) to encourage these groups to save.

Heaven help you if you prove to be exceptionally adroit on the accumulation side inside your IRA. Apparently that is verboten.
