    If we can assume that this is an eventuality, I would argue that assets in Roth IRAs will remain safe. I make this assertion based on the fact that income taxes have never been paid on 401-K or traditional IRA assets so the federal government will more readily nationalize these accounts. Roth IRAs have been taxed and are more likely to be considered personal/private property. What do you think???
