    Ah yes another "tax" which will be about as successful as Social Security.

    Another tax which will be squandered on anything except retirement.

    Social Security has kept millions of elderly from living in complete squalor, including my grandmother. You got a problem with that or should we just eat the poor?

    I don't think the poor would be too tasty, that and I wouldn't enjoy having Prion Disease.

    Do we actually have a retirement crisis? Articles I've read give amounts in retirement accounts. Are assets outside qualified accounts considered?

    Not exactly a crisis, but it's bad:

    This law only says they have to offer a retirement plan that can be paid with automatic payroll deductions. It doesn't say employers have to actually match contributions.
