in regards to indexing the limit, i believe Senator Roth (of Roth IRA fame) has floated the proposal to properly index the amount and raise the limit. he's saying the limit should be $5000 (yea, baby!) because (according to his numbers) that would be the limit if it was indexed properly from 1986, I believe.

i'm not sure if that would apply only to the Roth IRA or to all IRAs (except the Education IRA, of course).

wouldnt' it be nice, though, to have a $5000 limit Roth IRA or regular IRA?........i guess our government, which bemoans the low savings rate, would rather have us spend an extra $3000 than save it....
