Are they made with a promise?

_________

Yes, you invest in a Roth IRA/401K because the law says you don't get a deduction now because you won't pay income tax on the money earned when you retire. I'd consider that a promise.

And when the time comes that Obama-philes (probably after his reign is over) have more control, they'll start going after money most people believed were safe.

That's why I still invest in a traditional 401K as well as the Roth. I want my deductions today, because while I hope the Roth will be tax free when I retire. I'm not prepared to go all in and lose deductions today.

Politicians make a lot of promises...don't trust any of them.
