No! I do not want the federal government to focus on my life, hopes, or aspirations. I can do that all by myself. What I want is for these lowlife thieves and liars to stay as far away from me as possible."And in the coming months - in the coming months, let's see where else we can make progress together. Let's make this a year of action. That's what most Americans want, for all of us in this chamber to focus on their lives, their hopes, their aspirations." source
But the most alarming thing he brought up was this (and no one seems to be saying much about it.)
"Let's do more to help Americans save for retirement. Today most workers don't have a pension. A Social Security check often isn't enough on its own. And while the stock market has doubled over the last five years, that doesn't help folks who don't have 401(k)s. That's why tomorrow I will direct the Treasury to create a new way for working Americans to start their own retirement savings: MyRA. It's a -- it's a new savings bond that encourages folks to build a nest egg."
"MyRA guarantees a decent return with no risk of losing what you put in. And if this Congress wants to help, work with me to fix an upside-down tax code that gives big tax breaks to help the wealthy save, but does little or nothing for middle-class Americans, offer every American access to an automatic IRA on the job, so they can save at work just like everybody in this chamber can." source
Get it? Automatic IRA. Automatic in that they will skim more of your paycheck (by force of law) to maintain their Ponzi schemes.
Wake up America...
Jim, at Asylum Watch "gets it."
