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.

I feel I have had a great life and career in this great country. I am happy to pay my share of the tax burden, even in retirement. We will likely be well into the 25% range for the forseeable future. Goodie! We also get to pay CA state income tax. But I stay because it's such a great place to live.
