And as a result:

401(k) breaches undermining retirement security for millions - The Washington Post

A large and growing share of American workers are tapping their retirement savings accounts for non-retirement needs, raising broad questions about the effectiveness of one of the most important savings vehicles for old age.
More than one in four American workers with 401(k) and other retirement savings accounts use them to pay current expenses, new data show. The withdrawals, cash-outs and loans drain nearly a quarter of the $293 billion that workers and employers deposit into the accounts each year, undermining already shaky retirement security for millions of Americans.

It ocurrs to me that this could be part of O's plan. If people end up with nothing in retirement, then the gov will have to be their savior. Will America eventually become a third world country?

Don't we still blame Bush for the horrid economy? Obama has only been in office for four years.

The economy, though not what we want it to be, is much better overall than in 2008. The President shouldn't get all the credit nor all the blame. No President controls the climate or every event in other countries.

Didn't the economy get a lot better after WW2? Hold on to your hats ladies and gentlemen. Couple more mid eastern countries, and you're all gonna get a huge tax return.

Btw, since when did the president control the economy? 0_o.
