Having spent the last ten years, minimally, spending without conscience or concern, the federal government has hit the wall; no one wants to buy our Treasury bonds used to finance the national debt.  As one bill after another comes out of congress giving the government and its corporate buddies control of everything from our water and land to our food and health, it comes as no surprise that the final act of redistribution of wealth to the already wealthy, is, the forced conversion of private retirement investments into nationalized retirement accounts which are nothing less than the confiscation of wealth from the middle class to pay the debt run up by one congress and president after another.

Obama Administration begins the “grab” for retirement accounts

S 3760, introduced August 5 by Jeff Bingaman (D-N.M.) and John Kerry (D-Mass.) would require that employers of workers currently not covered by any retirement program pay 3% of compensation into mandatory, automatic IRA accounts.  That would also have the effect of increasing the assets that the US government could then seize.

This is the Republican privatization of Social Security scheme trotted out during the Bush years, retooled and now focused on the private savings of the middle class.  Now, instead of forcing you to invest any portion of your Social Security retirement in the stock market, a move which would have seen one of the greatest thefts of wealth and its redistribution to the crooks and thieves on Wall Street had they been successful, the Democrat faction has taken up the cause of confiscating private investment accounts to fund the rampant overspending of government using retirement savings of those who were able to contribute to 401(k) and IRA accounts and who have savings in private pension funds.  More
