I don’t believe this will ever happen in my lifetime but if it does I’ll die keeping them away from my money. And I don’t die easy.
They try this, and it will be CWII.
I don’t think you have much to worry about but IF they did do this there would be little you could do about it. Executive order freezing all IRAs, 401s, defined benefit plans. Work out the details after that while you (all of us) wondered why we didn’t see it coming. I do think that would be the last straw for a bunch of people who scrimped and saved over a life time for a comfortable retirement. The gauntlet would be thrown down.
you and me both....
