The IRS will be getting their cut when you withdraw funds(I live in PA so I will pay no PA income taxes or local income taxes on IRA/401K withdrawals). It's little consolation but figure if the federal government seizes our IRA/401K accounts, about 15-35% of that money was the federal government's money.

This is why an Index Universal Life Policy is a better way to save for retirement, in my opinion. Gains on the accumulated funds are protected from market volatility and distributions are tax free.
