According to a “senior administration official,” Mr. Obama wants to go after the private retirement accounts of people he deems have saved too much for their retirements. Some taxpayers, the official fumed, have accumulated “many millions of dollars in these accounts, substantially more than is needed to fund reasonable levels of retirement saving.”
No, really, Mr. Obama, you politicians have done quite enough already, thank you. Maybe it is time you move to Cyprus. You would fit in perfectly over there.
