    And finance it by taxing all incomes without the hyper-regressive ceiling we currently have.

    The whole notion of private pensions is a con, predicated on another con, the notion that wealth can be stored, nicely and safely tucked away somewhere until you need it.

      401(k)s you're never allowed to withdraw money from, even if you're homeless and at risk of dying of exposure.

      That's who they are.  They believe that Wall Street is simply entitled to profit from you labor as much as possible, and the believe that the purpose of Government is to force you to hand over your wages to the rich.

      This is what Pinochet did to Chile's government pensions, btw.  And millions are in poverty today because of it.

      Mr. Universe is a known degenerate Robotophile, and his sources include former Browncoat Traitors. What is their agenda in leaking top secret information about the Reavers and endangering us all?
