Just to be devil's advocate, what if FIT is abolished and replaced by a natioanal sales tax?

I've asked that question before, and I don't think anyone knows the answer. But I think you might be right if you're implying that you will have paid the tax on your Roth while a traditional IRA might suddenly become free money.

That's why I'm trying to do both. If income taxes still exist when I retire, then maybe half of my investments (in the Roth) will have been taxed at a lower amount. If income taxes don't exist when I retire, then maybe about half of my investments (in a traditional IRA or 401k) might become free.
