Intercst earned his retirement nestegg on his own, LBYM coupled with savvy investing. He did not have his wealth handed to him, and he does not rely on ongoing subsidies (Obamacare aside) of his chosen life style.

That is a considerable difference.


Actually the benefit I get from the lack of taxation on unrealized investment gains is far greater than any Obamacare subsidy. You guys really need to understand the tax code. Working for wage & salary income is just about the dumbest thing you can do, taxwise. I'm glad I learned that at a relatively young age (about 35).
