Retirement is still a reachable goal. We need to admit to ourselves that Republicans and Democrats do not care about our retirement. Business no longer feels it owes its workers a good retirement after many years of loyal service. Heck I can't even remember the last time I heard of someone getting a Gold Watch on his/her final day of work.
Start saving for your retirement today. Save as much as you can. Learn the basics on how to invest. Talk to a Fee Only financial planner. Question why the investment they are telling you to buy is better than the one you currently own. Do your own research and get a 2nd opinion.
Hold all members of the government accountable for their actions. Stop viewing Democrats or Republicans as always right or wrong. The fact is simple neither side really cares about you. They care more what the Big Donors want. Forget the idea of class envy.
They left off the biggest worry for those retiring now. Obama is your President!
Well you don't have to worry SS will be there for most ! After the motorcycle trip I took last weekend to the Outer Banks NC and sat and people watched... here it is. I would say 60% of the people I saw were very over weight I don't think most will survive to retirement. So eat away and you don't have to worry about any retirement. Obesity is a big problem in today's world in the USA. I think life spans will drop in the next 10 years.
Do you really think multimillionaires like John McCain or John Kerry represent people living paycheck to paycheck? Social Security is just "chump-change" to them.
As for having 1/2 a million dollars saved for retirement, hope you're very healthy in your old age. Neither the current health care costs, or the Obama Care,( coming next year), will enable anyone to retire with confidence.
You can't retire - Barry needs you to work to generate tax revenue to pay the trillions in debt that he's racking up, and your grandchildren's incomes just won't cover it. mmm, mmm, mmm!
