You must plan for a very high lifestyle in retirement if your taxable income is going to be higher than in the 15% bracket.

As a matter fo fact, we do plan for a respectable income in retirement. Is something wrong with this?

We have worked, saved and invested all our lives. Why shouldn't we enjoy the fruits of our labor?

I have a strong belief that we saved instead of spending, and should not be penalized for having done this.

There is nothing wrong with it.
I was just wondering how much you think is a reasonable amount on which to live when you are retired. How much do you expect to live on each year?

Of course you don't have to answer if you don't want to.
I was just wondering... not judging.
