Uncle Sam Plans To Steal Your 401K

Unions need help, pension plans underfunded

Uncle Sam Wants To Steal Your 401K,IRA’s

$3.6 TRILLION in 401(k) accounts. They want more.

Is Obama going to nationalize your 401k?

Here’s the break down;

  • The public would convert their 401(k’s),IRA’s to T-notes.
  • The govt. would issue an IOU.(like Social Security)
  • The U.S. Treasury could then float our country’s deficit and unsustainable spending.
  • You might receive a 3% return ( IF the money is there when you retire)


Uncle Sam I Want You


According to Business Week,
“Retiree Annuities May Be Promoted by Obama Aides”
Spearheaded by Assistant Labor Secretary Phyllis C. Borzi , and Deputy Assistant Treasury Secretary,Mark Iwry,
the treasury and labor departments would like to know the best way to forcibly make you convert at least part of your 401k to T-funded annuities.  Since 1980 the inflation index has been manipulated to keep interest rates low. Therefore, the return on the retiree’s 401k and IRA’s would be dismal.

Much like Social Security(really a tax), the govt. would  guarantee a steady income during retirement. However,most people have paid a lot more into Social Security than they will ever receive. Plus, many will never receive Social Security ( in essence, a tax) because congress has spent the money placed in the Social Security Trust Fund.

 Democrats approached this subject once before, in 2008.

U.S.News reported in 2008,  “House Democrats recently invited Teresa Ghilarducci, a professor at the New School of Social Research, to testify before a subcommittee on her idea to eliminate the preferential tax treatment of the popular retirement plans. In place of 401(k) plans and IRA’s she would have workers transfer their dough into government-created “guaranteed retirement accounts” for every worker. The government would deposit $600 (inflation indexed) every year into the GRAs.

Each worker would also have to save 5 percent of pay into the accounts, to which the government would pay a measly 3 percent return.

Rep. Jim McDermott, a Democrat from Washington and chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee’s Subcommittee on Income Security and Family Support, said  in 2008, “the savings rate isn’t going up for the investment of $80 billion [in 401(k) tax breaks], we have to start to think about whether or not we want to continue to invest that $80 billion for a policy that’s not generating what we now say it should.”

  1. Yes, I’ve heard of this plan to steal more of people’s money. It’s been talked about behind closed doors in DC for over a year. As a CPA and Finanical Planner, I can tell you there is no way out of our worsening financial situation other than to steal the people’s money and/or default on debt and/or devalue the dollar. This IS a planned take-down of America so we will ‘accept’ a 1 world governmen as a ‘solution’ to the collapse of our economy and moneytary system.

  2. Once they take it, you will never see that money again. The state will attempt to steal it by saying they are trying to help you.

  3. The criminals are now in charge. They see us a their prey, not their constituency. The deception & fraud at the highest levels are unprecedented in America. There still are some principled public servants who have the nation’s best interests at heart, but their voice is diminishing. All those who love the USA for the principles upon which we were founded, & wnat to pass the blessing they represent on to our heirss, MUST speak up & vote in November. Throw these scoundrels out, & replace them with people of integrity. Let’s get back to what America has been, and must be…the world’s TRUE bastion of freedom.
