With a combined $10 trillion sitting in IRAs and 401(k) plans, retirement accounts make a juicy target. Some of this money has never been taxed, and under current law never will be. To maintain this savings incentive the government spends $100 billion a year in the form of tax breaks to those who stash money in these kinds of accounts.
