Obama's Cat-Food Future For Retirees

Read the whole thing at IBD:

Americans are drawing down their 401(k)s for nonretirement needs in record numbers, just as Social Security goes bust. This portends poverty for millions as the White House fiddles. Cat food, anyone?

One out of four U.S. workers with 401(k) retirement savings accounts has been forced to cash them out or borrow from them at high costs just to stay solvent.

Why is this happening? It's tempting to blame workers financial incompetence for these early cashouts, as some of the Post's quoted experts do. But harder evidence points to Obama's economic policies.
