  •  But...but... (0+ / 0-)

    Just earlier this week, several other Kossacks and I got shouted down when we tried to tell you all that the 401(k) is not the great savior of the American people.

    Many of you told us we were wrong. It got downright ugly in a few comments. Hide rates were thrown in some cases, if I remember correctly.

    But, WE KNOW. We live in this world. Why would we lie about what we experienced?

    Now, what is anyone going to do to keep half a generation of our citizens from living their "golden years" in abject poverty?

    An apology from those rabid commentators who screamed we were wrong would be a nice start. I won't hold my breath, though.
