This is the kind of stuff we have to look forward to when you have an all-democrat congress and president. Clearly, those "rich people" have used this incredible loophole to steal from the poor, they need to be punished for saving. I say we just take away their 401(k) and call it part of their "patriotic duty" to help the country. Then we can take all that 401(k) money and distribute it to those "disenfranchised" people who never saved anything.
Not if this comes up next year. There is 100% chance Obama wins. There is a 50% chance the dems will get 60 seats in the senate. There is a good chance this shit could pass with out 1 single republican vote. Obama would rubber stamp it in a second. It is shit like this why we need split government. I rather like my 401k the way it is personally.
If not consider it a rubberstamp.
