StockGoddess: "Tax rates, despite what the Republicans are telling you, are at a 50-year LOW. With our yen for spending and our deficit there ain't no where for these rates to go but up.

I sleep better at night knowing that's not yet another unknown I must factor for when planning my retirement.

Roth. All the way."

Do you lose any sleep thinking about FairTax or other national sales/consumption tax programs? It would clearly require taxes on money withdrawn from a Roth xyz and then spent on consumption.
