Next up, after the 401(k) hoax and the defined benefit plan heist, will be the raid on public sector pensions. We know that's coming; we've heard the drumbeats.
We let them hoodwink us into handing our retirement savings over to the Wall Street casino (where the house always wins) through 401(k)s, we didn't pay attention when they found myriad ways to chip away at defined benefit plans, and now they're telling us Social Security is broke. This is our last scrap of retirement funds, and we need to wake up, educate ourselves and others, and refuse to let them steal this, too.
