yes, this is very simple.

leave the thing alone.

why does the federal govt seem intent on pushing average americans out the risk curve to get ANY returns at all???

from an average investor standpoint, I feel that between the Fed policies, the Congress, and now this....that I'm one of the herd being endlessly goaded over the cliff.

I have to bluntly ask:
Who is this seeming attack going to benefit??

I'll tell you who it harms: the mid- and low-level investor, who is NOT sophisticated enough to play market games, nor wealthy enough to hire Medoff-style 'advisers'.

Thanks, for nothing.
