13. all individual retirement plans
actually end up being replacements for the social safety net that Reagan eliminated in the 1980s.

Unemployed? Who needs unemployment insurance? Break into your retirement account.

Uncovered medical expense? Who needs government health coverage? Just break into your retirement account?

Pay for kid's college tuition? Who needs public universities? Open up that retirement account.

Of course, when you are really retired, you may find yourself in big trouble.
