The retirement account is the food feeding this Monster. Dismantle, pay the tax cut loss. That is the new "Boston Tea Party." Work save and buy the old fasion way. The bailout is creating a glutant monster and our retirement funds are finanacing it. Now our tax dollars are funding it. That is what is making the Nation peeved. Banking Speculators caused the fuel crises that caused massive lay offs. The deregulated banks increased fees, APR and credit requirements. Many homeowners were up to date on short term points only loans. The banks simply would not refinance them. Now they claim boo hoo those bad home owners. Now the banks are being given money to by up everything dirt cheap. We need to sacrifice a little retirement funding to save the future of our children. Investment banking is not the only road to retirement.
