  1. I agree, but didn't Clinton also use Social Security to balance the budget?

    Most of the Obama lovers on this board post from the public library computer after cashing their welfare checks.

  6. In all seriousness if this is a true proposal this is BS plain and simple. I better roll my dormant 401k into IRA quick.

    If this were to happen, IRA's would likely be included, IMO.

    And this is precisely the reason Obama and Co. want to confiscate 401(k)'s and IRA's -- so they can use those funds to fuel more deficit spending because recent buyers of treasuries have left the building. They are going to have a hell of a time getting this through the revolving door because unlike Social Security, 401(k)'s and IRA's are currently not connected to the government. It would be pure confiscation on the government's part. I can just see the riots now.
