    Obama and his minions have been wanting to nationalize all retirement funds since they were coronated.

    Did anyone really think that they were going to stop when they took over control of our healthcare money?
     
  4. IIRC, in Ferfals book he stated that Argentina did just that. They conficated retirement accounts during their crisis.

    Anyone who thinks Congress will be able to restrain themselves and not start taxing distributions from Roth IRAs is a fool.

    Again, going where the money is at and easy to take: the middle class.

    Is there anybody here left that really thinks "the rich" doesn't include them when Obama and the liberals start talking about taxing the hell out of "the rich"?

    Yep.

    With the ultra corrupt obama syndicate, "Rich" is just a code word for "everyone".

    Yep...Hopefully, there will be a wake-up call for some delusional sorts who actually buy into Obama's class warfare mantra that only a fraction of "one-percenters" will be targeted by his regime.

    This brings to mind Pastor Martin Niemoller's classic observation on the rise of Nazi Germany: "First they came for the..."

    Hum... if you live in employer provided housing... you pay S.S. and income tax on it. Right? If you have a car provided, membership in a gym, tennis/golf club, etc... etc., etc., etc. Why is health insurance any different?

    Consider... would you rather pay tax on the benefit provided by the employer? Or would you rather simply have the employer put the cost of the benefit as cash into you pay so that you could then take the actual money and buy whatever coverage you wanted/did not want in the market place?
     
  13. How about cutting some waste and not taxing or taking anyone's retirement accounts or benefits?

    Odd how cutting the spending is NEVER an option to those people.

    Keep taxing the rich and the middle class...and they will both go away.

    You guys saw this coming, right?


    Did anyone really think Joe-the Plumber's 401K would be save from Obama's "spread the wealth around" philosophy?
    Seriously?

    America votes exactly what she deserves.

  16. It's not just democrats. Both parties are complicit in this and most other things.

    I have zero faith in this ship turning around now. ZERO.
     
  17. I like the Fair Tax, but it has as much a chance of becoming law as does Romney becoming a true conservative.
