For now it's slightly past the 'geek level' in that it may or may not make it to hard policy.

But the fact that it got this far means it WILL be policy eventually.

I don't regret not having ANY 401k'S OR ira's or whatever for a long time now. Eventually it will not surprise me if retirement accounts are screwed with by the Liberals (and establishment Republicans) in government. I still believe that one day, the gov't will figure out how to confiscate or at least tax capital that people are holding.

Just look at mooch liberals on the PA board. They are always whining about "people and corporations are just sitting on capital". That shows the Liberal mindset. They think that your private saved stash of cash is really public domain and they resent you for holding on to it.

Don't believe me? Think it's impossible?

I ask you, demographically is America going more Right or Left? Are today's young people taught more collectivism or individualism? Will they be upset about turning over freedoms to government, or possibly, APPRECIATIVE of nanny government?
