What’s In Your IRA? Don’t Worry, Mitt Romney Doesn’t Know Either

Oh HI, rapidly aging baby boomers! How is that retirement planning coming? From what we hear, not so hot! Perhaps if America’s baby boomers had been as smart as Mitt Romney and found a way to siphon $100,000,000 (ONE HUNDRED MILLION) into an IRA (individual retirement account to you young ones) in spite of strict caps on contributions, and found tax loopholes to exploit and sent their moneys on exotic vacations to places like Bermuda, they would not have to suckle so hard from the government’s teat and would be able to exercise Personal Responsibility of the kind that Saint Reagan preached.

Maybe Romney thinks “Depression” means the poor only have $30 big in checking? If you’re in financial difficulties, fellows, may I suggest cutting the chauffeur to part time, and perhaps R&Ring in Palm Beach instead of the Maldives? Oh well. Let us all eat horsey cake.
