>> The government in no way dictates your retirement future. You're free to save what you like, within your financial ability to do so. <<You are mostly right, at least for now. But if the government eventually "fixes" the Social Security mess by heavily means testing it -- as would seem to be one option for "fixing" it -- then they would be actively discouraging saving, especially if the phase-out was sharp and the phase-out income level started at a modest level.That's not the same as saying we *can't* save, but eliminating almost all incentive to do it would nearly be the same.#29
