Retirement Account Nationalization?

Feb 4, 2013|

There is $19.4 trillion sitting in personal retirement accounts in the Unites States and it appears this money may be too tempting for the U.S. Government. There is a thought in The U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau that use of this money is a viable option for the Administration. Howie was extremely perturbed and asked can you say retirement account nationalization.

Transcript - Not for consumer use. Robot overlords only. Will not be accurate.

Through this from The Washington Times. I've become a -- Jesse Jackson was talking about this the other day in that rush mentioned at the end of the show. For his wanted to bring it up by -- your 401K. About the be nationalized. And he was saying it might be a good idea to watch you know issue belongs to everybody that's got to 401K. You know I I think one reason they would they would like to do this is because it would it it would be better than it just taking your taking hold your stocks that you have in your 401K. That might be better that might. Be better than continuing to print money which is. Sooner or later gonna lead to big problems with with runaway inflation. Solicit from The Washington Times. The nine point the nineteen point four trillion. In picking point four trillion. Sitting in personal retirement accounts like the 41 K may be too tempting apple for a government that is quite broke -- momentarily and morally. The US Consumer Financial Protection Bureau that's -- Warren's agency. Her rock Vermont start. The -- created that's the one David Petraeus -- wife worked for for a mere. 183000. Dollars a year that's the that's the agency were more than two thirds of the employees make over a 100000 dollars a year. The US Consumer Financial Protection Bureau director Richard -- chords right. Recently mentioned these accounts in an interview stating quote that's one of the things we've been exploring and or interest and in terms of weather and what authority we have. Up all. The agency created by the 2010 Dodd-Frank act is very concerned about how safe your retirement savings are they apparently concerned the retirement retiring baby boomers may become victims of financial scams. I did the government taking over the taking over my account and giving me bonds would be the biggest financial scam all but you know what I don't have a 401K anymore I cashed out. Who I was afraid this was gonna happen. I was afraid either the stock market was gonna crash and moved everything into war a money market funds in the I just -- held on to money market funds electorate 59 and a half. And got the hell out of the 41 case before the tax rate went up. And before the government to its match the money. So now I have way now I have a house. I've I have -- rental property that's all paid for and again I'm not saying they can't grab a rental property but they grabbed the rental property it's all over anyway you know. It's this is this is this could be step one and I'm not saying it's gonna happen but I'm just saying you know what how can you trust how can you trust anything. With the government now days I mean this is that this is the worst government we have ever had in American history. This is the this is the ingredients -- the idea. The most corrupt. The the BO least accountable government in in history. If the government takes control of retirement accounts -- will not be called nationalization. Of getting it won't be. The world most likely be and in decipher bold document that provides an opt out. Option initially but why would you want to do that. The US government only wants to ensure the safety of your retirement balanced they did after all created new bureaucracy for that specific purpose. And -- piece for -- an investment in US bonds. This brings us back to that juicy apple hanging from the tree of our lights work and rationalizing the personal retirement accounts were all our government to -- we've -- more from its largest -- US citizens. Without further devaluing the currency. While this may seem far fetched as international pressure amounts to maintain the value of the dollar you will hear more about this. If that some day we find ourselves -- -- tipping point in international relations it may very well come down to nationalizing our 41 case. We're going to war many Americans are choosing to take their penalties and withdraw their 401K funds while they still count. Exactly. Exactly just like -- -- -- -- give Obama hip. I would suggest used -- might get that done this year that would be -- their cars that vice first sparked the current financial advisor tells you pull up the point that your money out of your 401 -- as soon as you can without a penalty. Doctor -- says get your regular and so that that they don't have a chance to was say which -- and her case. Forty what do we wanna save you four we've we've got to save his money for a offer frenzy illegal aliens who just got here. Now we go where we ought to provide them with the medical care they're the ones who deserve in my view you've been paying taxes all these years. We -- have to get help our friends who just got over here. Can't speak English. 18774694322. Do you think -- deeply for for the government can -- rather get get get around to -- national. Icing before one K. How we gas up fourteen cents last week where's the outrage -- -- the live news crews if I -- beast MSNBC isn't on this story if only bush were still president. Yup and now you know let's -- You know that's an -- and fourteen cents -- for gas were up fourteen cents last week have you heard anything about it throughout the -- -- Chris. -- -- -- in her arm. 187746. Mine if they think they will face resistance taking our guns -- just wait just watch -- they try to take our hard earned savings. The government already has a nationalized retirement plan that's called Social Security yup but they're not getting enough out of Social Security you know that's one of the things they wanted there was a wanna raise right now have to go over certain amount like at 2101000. Or so. You don't have to pay any more money into Social Security they want to war they wanna make -- like Medicare so that you just keep paying. Up up and up and up but forever. You know. And and that's not going to be enough either so they're gonna bigger need to what they gonna need to grab this money there's no question about it there's only the only question is do they think they can pull off. 1877469432218774694322. That's because you're one of the beautiful people live happily and us regular people can afford it we are not in the seven digit incomes -- wish it were in the seven digit income I noticed I noticed it was up fourteen cents.

Well I -- my belt I just about last year. The -- of the panel to. It. Now I was fortunate enough not have to take the penalty but as soon as I could not as soon as -- got past that no penalty stage I got it all out all I -- I wouldn't. Within 48 to 72 hours. -- sort of -- banks in the -- -- and I kept that I let it build up again for another year or so and I waited and I knew the taxes we're going up so -- -- them all out right before the end of the year to again -- To get avoid getting hit with a higher taxes. So I just unit you know while law -- -- -- -- -- -- the company wants to was you don't -- -- to a degree match 50% or 30% whatever they match now.
