You can still invest in IRAs, you just don't get the tax deduction. But you can still take advantage of the tax deferral aspect, i.e. tax free growth, of investing inside of one.

Why would you do this? You'll eventually end up paying income taxes on your "tax free" growth instead of lower capital gains tax in regular investment accounts?
