I have AGNC and other MREITS in an IRA - it doesn't matter what happens to tax rates. Anyone who believed in Romney's tax plan must get advice from the the tooth fairy. Rates have to go up or the country goes to hell. Eventually, a few teapublicans will read their tea leaves and get the message. The economhy is improving despite Congress; the drop in gas prices will help. Today's sell-off of everything ( except CMG, which is way overpriced) is just the usual Wall Street stupidity. The market will be higher by the end of the year. I was getting ready to sell into the fool's rally if Romney won. We are getting the reverse and it will time to buy in the next few days.
