I am not sure what I am reading makes sense. Are there some out there that think that the gov. could, in the future, decide to renege on the whole Roth concept and say, "oh...we changed our minds.....yer gonna have to pay taxes on your Roth"??? I don't think so. Just my opinion, but I don't think they could legally DO that anyway. They made a deal in my mind...a contract with Americans so to speak. I don't believe that "contract" could be broken.

Now, they COULD decide to say..."ok....we're gonna lose millions in taxes in the future if we keep this Roth thing going, so we are canceling the idea altogether on any NEW accounts". Now THAT could definately happen.
