house Bill H.R. 6757

Letting Small Businesses Create Pooled Retirement Plans, Encouraging the Use of New & Existing Savings Accounts

Argument in favor

This bill would not only make it easier and more cost effective for small businesses to set up retirement plans by pooling together, it’d help American families save for their education, new children, and retirement.

The more bodies you can rap up into a policy the better rate you can get. I belong to Kaisar Nothern Ca. My sister in law is Kaiser southern Ca. Because they have a larger group they have a better rate.

I interpret this bill as providing tax breaks on the smaller retirement saving plan. If I am correct this should be a definite yea. Too many times we protect the middle to high income with little regard for the little guy trying to save for their future.

Argument opposed

These changes to employer-sponsored retirement plans and tax-preferred savings accounts would cost the federal government billions in lost tax revenue, further increasing the deficit.

    If workers have trouble saving 1000.00, how are they going to save up to 2500.00 a year. The problem isn't ways to save, the problem is low wages to have the money to save. Does the Rep think that people are just not responsible and not saving their lush incomes? Shows how out of touch he is. People don't sane because they don't have any disposable income to save. Increase wages and you'll see people save.

    Benefits of opening MEPs I can agree with. That should have been the entirety of this bill - the remainder is whimsical. $2500/year cap is insufficient. I can live with no penalties on distributions in the following year but $7500 I first year of child’s birth is also insufficient. This entire bill isn’t worth the cost. Also, we know these saving plan are more costly/not as beneficial to the average worker than previous systems of retirement planning.

    Typical of the GOP, name a bill something that sounds wonderful but if you read the details, you'll find that it's the opposite.

    Low wages make it hard to start savings accounts. People need retirement money. I believe that fixing social security is more important.

    This is good sense legislation helping Americans. That's when we worry about the deficit? NO! Roll back the tax break to the 1% and big business. Stop these wars and stop giving the military more money than the ask for. Stop the socialists handouts to oil and pharmaceutical companies. STOP TRYING TO TAKE FUNDING FROM PROGRAMS THAT HELP SO MANY AMERICANS IN FAVOR OF YOUR SOCIALIST SUBSIDIZING OF THE 1% AND BIG BUSINESS!

    We don’t have enough money for this because Trump’s Bunch is spending us into bankruptcy. Making the Tax Cuts PERMANENT will finish us off. We’ll have to learn Russian.

    Jut another example of the munificence of the Republican party along the same genius lines of making citizens play the stock market on their own if that's how they want to save. Social Security - if it needs fixing, fix it, but don't give me any of this silly individual savings accounts with stock market participation. Are you kidding me?
