Well, I'm knocking on wood right now, but I think my retirement can survive even the economic devestation that will come about by virtue of Obama's economic/tax plans. DW and I are lucky. We've saved and invested throughout our adult lives, and we now have a sizable portfolio of taxable and tax-deferred investments. Obama's taxes and spending will hurt us some, but we should be able to live just fine, although DS and his wife will get far less from us. The folks who will be killed are the solid middle and upper middle classers, who will suffer big time from what Obamawama has in store for us all.
