I stumble on Susan Orman on PBS every once and a while, never staying long because my path in retirement has been set except for maybe rolling some of my 457b over into my Roth IRA.

But she said something that really hit home:

"There is probably no chance that taxes are going to be less in the future years because of all the pandemic money being handed out by the government. Someone is going to have to pay for it."

Ergo: Best to add to the Roth now instead of other 401's. This is a new twist to the old logic of having a Roth.
