Our lifestyle was based on the lower of our two salaries, was comfortable but not extravagant, and allowed vacations.
Live below your means and it can work.
It's nice to have someone to blame for having lots of funds and set for life when we retire but we have to be responsible too for not planning for our future. Obama is not our problem. Most of us do not have high paying jobs. Living on a shoe string budget does not allow saving for retirement. Most are blessed to keep a roof over their head and food on the table. Get real people, only a few are able to retire to live a luxurious life. Who do we blame.....fate, destiny? Money is not everything, we can't buy good health. We need to be blessed with being alive............then let the chips fall where they may. After all, there is no guarantee we will live to retire. if we do..........then we will be okay with what we have.
2 worst ways to ruin your retirement: 1) Investing in 401K (Wall Street) and 2) Obama who is creating all the drama.
Oh! Retired Joe makes sense, it is definitely to you're advantage to collect Social Security at 65, which is now about age 67 then
it won't be soon they'll change it to 70. Just when you hit 70 they'll make it 72 and when you're near 72 it will be 75.
Reason they will prolong the age, they figure you can work longer so the Politicians and wealthy can spend your money.
How many people will be able to obtain a job after age 70, less than 1 percent if you're lucky. The others bank on dying soon.
The Dow is up 90% with Obama.Change the Constitution to give him another term.
Unless you liked the Dow down 37% with Bush.There are morons that actually thought
GWB did a good job.I actually liked watching my 401k skyrocket.
