Due to lack of caffeine this morning, I forgot to add the rest of what I was thinking.

Employee pensions have all but been eliminated replaced by the failed 401, 403, 457, IRA morass for full-time workers and nothing for part-timers. Now Romney & Ryan want to destroy the Social Security leg too. Combine that with what globalization and anti-union laws and policies have done to wages and the only thing left of that three-legged stool is the seat. It looks to me like the plan is to do away with retirement and just make it so people work until they can't and then let their over-strapped families and charities take care of them. That worked so well in the past.
