One item that hasn't been mentioned yet, is tax issues at retirement.

Income from IRA's are taxed at the regular income tax rate of 15%,20%, 28%, etc. depending on how much you withdraw every year.

If you invest in stocks and hold them for more than five years, the capital gains tax rate drops to 10%. This is less than the income tax rate.

Just another thought.
