Muni Bonds To Lose Tax Advantage?

"They" just keep changin' all the rules...  even the rules aren't a sure thing with our "political class."  It's gonna be far more difficult for this nation to recover when the most steady rules are:  Uncertainty, fear, and political yammering.

Ah...  to be a member of the politcal class... to know the discussions of the new rules ahead of time, and to adjust investments accordingly...  before the common folk and business have a chance at all.... 

Then, regardless of which "side" you are on, you just blame the other side for being mean and stupid.

All Hail...  the political class... 

Now, if we could just change the rules for them, to where they are not allowed to invest/profit from insider information, and they don't get paid...for doing nothing valuable and undermining the greatest nation in human history.  The common folk would like a shot and changing the rules, for them, I do believe.

.02  is now worth what... .000002?
