Come on - let's give the folks who are working for retirement some help

Goofy- The reason for the limits is that wealthy people would be able to put a very large part of their income behind a tax sheltered wall

Some how I just can't see raising the limit $1000 or two as a real threat to the tax coffers of America.

Put $15,000 (plus or minus) away for 20 or 30 years,

I think these folks deserve a little plus....



AllDone - So buy non-dividend producing stocks in a taxable account - no rule against that.

Buy and Hold - A strategy that seems to have worked well over the last couple of years. For some folks who want the security of debt - treasuries, investment grade etc. - can't see how equity is attractive...



Ziggy - Agreed:



RH I suspect it makes less difference than either of you think

Great, then we could change it with little impact!!! Except, perhaps to a few hundred thousand hard working America's that do max out their 401(k) contributions and could add more: because a significantly large population of folks are not in companies where HCE makes a mark.
