    and totally slanted in favor of the very wealthy.

    Who knew you could juggle accounts legally to save more in taxes than the average American makes in a year! The only reason those tax codes read as they do is for rich people. Average people don't make enough to have deductions like that. If they understood how much they are being ripped off, the lower and middle classes would revolt. That's why 401(k)s were sold as tax-reducing accounts -- to make people think they were as vested in the stock market as the brokers on Wall Street and with a tax benefit to boot. Now look how Romney used his rich people tax laws to pad a 401(k) like no regular person could ever hope to do with their limits on contributions.

    I'm sorry, but this nonsense needs to be stopped.

    Rich people have been given every benefit for far too long, and now that we're on to them, they whine and spin constantly.

    Kick their cronies out of Congress, and pass some new tax laws. If they decide to go Galt, we have plenty of smart people to replace them.
