RR retirement is not being taken away by anyone. The left used that lie to win the last election by scaring workers. RR retirement is in great shape, unlike Social Security. If the Dems had not fought Bush when he wanted to do basically the same changes to SS that were done to RR retirement in the early 90's, we would now have Social Security in great shape also. The Dems attacked Bush for trying to save SS and now young people wonder if they will ever get anything.
OK, well then it was someone else who said that companies should not use their cash to boost their stock price by buy backs. I partially agree if the company was not doing anything to boost their business. UP is spending money on infrastructure, so I have no problem with them spending the extra cash on shares which they feel are undervalued.
