    why MLP's are getting hit hard IMHO

    Selling for lower tax rates this year, cap gains and ordinary applied to recapture, and tax policy potential change. Am encouraged if it's a rational process, which you can't count on. WSJ article by Liam Denning, that MLP taxes lost to govt is only $300 million per yr, vs a $ trillion per year deficit, .03%, 3/100s of a percent. Small potatoes, when you consider jobs and energy infrastructure and security, but you never know what will come out of the process when the can of worms is opened. The fundamentals for the industry seem stronger than ever for the next few years, and I don't think the unit prices come close to reflecting those prospects. Probably a good entry for a number of MLPs but who knows, could be a better buy before the tax/spending conversations are over. With EPDs 140% dist coverage, probably the safest in the sector.
