    I think you're being hyperbolic. In addition money market funds have a lower return than the inflation rate. So do CDs.

    You literally lose [Return Rate] - [Inflation Rate] = % loss on all money market funds. Unless it's 1939, money markets are a HORRIBLE idea.

    Is Your Member With The Career Military Or Against Them?.....

    It looks like the House will consider a one year hike in the debt limit joined to a repeal of the cut to the retirement benefits of the career military that was engineered by House Appropriations Chair Hal Rogers last month and acceded to by a majority of the House GOP. The dumbest move of many dumb moves by the House GOP over many years. The only 6 billion the House GOP took a real stand against borrowing out of 17+ trillion in debt was the $6 billion earned by and owed to the men and women who fought the war. Beltway cluelessness at its flood tide.

    Some GOP House members are threatening to vote against the debt limit hike even with the repeal attached to it. If they are that foolhardy, then they can look forward to being branded as anti-military for as long as they remain in Congress. This will be one of those votes that stick. Unlike the 40+ votes to repeal Obamacare or the past debt limit votes, or any of the shutdown votes, or even the TARP vote, any vote against repeal of the cut for any reason will have an audience that will score it for real –not in a Club for Growth/Heritage/ACU sort of way, but scored in memory and for good. Many Members have already figured out that their vote for the cut in career military retirement benefits deeply offended not just the uniformed military and their families, but also their friends and a vast cross section of Americans who understand the war sacrifices of the past dozen years have been shouldered by a very small percentage of the population and that “budget resolve” at the expense of this group is posturing at best.

    Democrats say they may vote against anything except a “clean debt limit hike.” Another interesting vote and no doubt many of the anti-military left will think nothing of doing whatever they think the president wants them to do. Again, this vote will be a mark on the permanent record. A “clean debt limn it” versus the real lives of real soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines. Go ahead, their GOP opponents must be saying, make their day.

    A pox is already on the House members who voted for the cut to begin with, but a double pox will be on those who stand in the way of its repeal. It is that simple, and though I have no doubt some GOPers will talk themselves into that box, they shouldn’t be surprised when very few friends of the military offer to help them out of it in the future.....snip~

    Yes, the markets love political gridlock that calls into question the credit worthiness of the US and dilute consumer confidence.

    Re: Boehner to Bring Debt Ceiling to Vote Without Policy Attachments

    It just passed got an update from Politico.
    When Bohner couldn't even get conservative members in the GOP caucus to agree on what they want to cut and what they want to stay or if they should yet again for the 1 millionth time try to repeal the ACA he had no other choice but to put this on the schedule to vote.

    But you don't take on that 30 percent correction, then you try to get back in once "corrected".

    Timing the market is bad, but this market is so overvalued, it's ridiculous. Companies are sitting on piles of cash for a reason. They know it's all bogus.
