but would requiring RMDs on a Roth at 70.5 really add that much to the gov't coffers?

It could make a small bit of difference - especially as 401k Roths continue to gain acceptance.

1. It could count against SS so that it is taxed at a higher rate.
2. It could be added to income for any other income-based federal benefits.
3. Any interest the monies make outside of the Roth would be taxed going forward instead of remaining in the account and growing tax free.
