"Of course, we never know what the clowns in Congress will do. They may make withdrawals from Roth IRAs taxible. They may require IRAs and Roth IRAs to contain 30% or more in treasury bonds. we will never know. "

Hi JeanDavid,

Yup. I was thinking, if they do that then folks might dump their IRAs, so... Maybe they announce it over a weekend and they add a MAD provision. Whats a MAD provision? Maximum Allowed Distribution! Maybe you could exceed the MAD but large penalties would apply. Also with the kicker that the treasuries could not be sold until all other assets had been sold...

Take care, Ken
