I don't know who'll win. But, even if it took me $30M to save $5M, I'd rather do that than have an underfunded old age. And, an underfunded old age is almost guaranteed for the majority of people our age. I'm a little youger than you.

I imagine means testing might come into play someday regarding social security. We might be taxed to fund non savers in our old age. We will be taxed to dig the US out of the hole both political parties have dug over the past 20 years. And, the US will likeley keep the dollar low and inflation high so that the national debt becomes cheaper. I wonder of the price of my house will keep up with inflation?

Anyway, there's no telling who will win, and we might die of brain cancer in two years anyway, so I enjoy the now and plan for the future and don't really worry about what will happen all that much.
