Taxes are already paid on a ROTH. Whatever it grows to is yours to keep....ALL of it! But you have to have "earned income" to contribute to it and you can't put any more that $5000 a year in it.

When they print money, money becomes worth less. That's just a fact. It WILL all catch up eventually. Wait until a loaf of bread hits $50,000..... then you'll understand.

<quoted text>Without a tennis ball or a stick to throw and watch you chase, I'll answer your pointless question to amuse myself. Nothing you post pertains truthfully to Obama wasting tax payers money. It is impossible for liberals to deal truthfully with the reality of Obama or the wasting tax payers money. The sequester proved that but from your posts, it's obvious that a simpleton such as yourself is incapable of realizing that.
That was quite a momentous explanation, completely evasive, totally self-serving, and filled with predictably tired and non-factual BS.

You've amused me.

I understand inflation, but you are describeing hyper inflation.

Consumer prices rose just 1.7 percent in 2012, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports. That's about half the pace of 2011 when prices went up 3 percent.

In December, BLS says, prices were unchanged.

One major reason inflation slowed last year: Gas prices went up just 1.7 percent, after gains of 13.8 percent in 2010 and 9.9 percent in 2011. Also, food costs rose 1.8 percent. BLS says that was "a deceleration" from the 4.7 percent increase in 2011.

As Reuters writes, the news that inflation remains in check "should help give the Federal Reserve room to prop up the economy by staying on its ultra-easy monetary policy path." In other words, there's no reason to think the Fed will need to start pushing up short-term interest rates anytime soon.

1.7 is not "about half" did they have math in Salem? If you believe interest rates will not rise any time soon then I suggest you purchase Bonds. I got out of the Bond Market 2 weeks ago. Conventional wisdom says interest rates really have no place left to go but up! Good luck..

If you are 50 years old or older you can contribute up to $6,500.00 in 2013, if you have enough taxable income to reach the maximum contribution.

Age 49 and under max is $5500 for 2013.

ROF-LMAO

"1.7 is not "about half"- not half of what?

3%/2 = 1.5

Two tenths of a percent seems pretty damn close to me.

When a traditional savings account at the bank is paying less than 1% I would agree, interest rates have no way to go but up.

LMAO! You know why you will always be a failure? Because being a small man you think small. 1% savings account? LMAO! I bet you are making big money in your minimum wage savings account! LOL! 1.7 is over half of 3. I guess you liberals always see the glass as half empty...

No shit Einstein, that is why it said "That's about half the pace of 2011 when prices went up three percent."

Did it say over or under a half, NO!

You spinning your own mistake only makes you look even more foolish and childish.

Prices went up 3% and then 1.7% according to your statistics. Today it costs me $1.89 for a head of lettuce. That same head of lettuce costed $1.25 just two years ago. I'm not real good at math, but it seems like more than just a 4.7% increase. Let's talk about bacon. Two years ago, I could buy two pounds of bacon for $6.... on sale. Now the sale price for bacon is $4.49 for a whopping 12 ounce package! Bacon also seems like more than a 4.7% increase. Have you seen the price of ice cream lately? What about the size of the container it now comes in?

You may be right on the amount. I was thinking of 2012 because you have until April 15 to contribute for 2012.

Just curious any of you heard yet. When january rolls around All of us are going to have to fill out a 15 page form just to see if we quailfy for obamacare. If your insurance according to department human services, Your insurance you currently have must have every preventive test imagintive. Therefore most of your insurance coverage won't quialfy. Then you get obamacare you have to fill out a 61 page form that will take someone that has a phd to fill out. But here's the kicker this will be the IRS's job to inforce obamacare and the IRS will have the nose all over your income. You will have to keep them informed right down to the last penny however you income changes and what your spending. Now i know i'm not the only that doesn't want the IRS up in my business every single week, believe me they will be keeping track of you. IRS will be given even more power than got now. All you obama voters say bye bye to freedom come january it's gone. But remember obama and anyone that voted it for obamacare will not be forced to have obamacare. They just want you to have the american people. But don't gripe if you voted for obama, this is what you get. And to you obama voters i hope you enjoy all that paperwork you are going to have to fill out(NOT!!!).
Obama care like glowbull warming nafta etc. are all steps that furthur the UN & NWO plan . ITs part of agenda 21. All those things drive producing manufacturing jobs from the USA. To be fair the republican,s are just as guilty. What transpired is many UN & NWO supporters decided the so called middle class in the US had more than their fair share.So the middle class jobs where redistrubuted (given) to third world places. The USA is destined to be a third world nation. Sad end to a once great republic.

You are obviously speaking from your own recent experiences. That's good. Admitting you have a problem is the first step towards recovering from liberalism.

I have posted this before. It illustrate the point perfectly. Those Obama lovers who support Obama and like him because he only wants to raise taxes on the rich don't see the reality of what this guy is doing to the poor and middle class. The very people he claims to represent are getting it shoved up their a** by him and they are too gullible to see it happening.

If Obama gave a rats a** about the poor and middle class he would be drilling for oil right here. He would lower taxes on everyone. He wouldn't pass bills that force people to buy something they don't want. He would lower the miminum wage. He would send all illegals home. He would stop all foreign aid. He would veto any gun control bills that come before him. He would eliminate welfare and food stamps. He would take back all Obama phones. He would outlaw abortions. He would reinstate biggie size drinks in New York.....etc.....Oh, and he would read the Constitution.
