    I'm not so worried about the Fed not paying interest earned on the G fund for a short period as I am that they can and have borrowed Billion of actual dollars of our retirement money. http://www.federaltimes.com/article/20110405/BENEFITS02/104050306/ http://www.examiner.com/finance-examiner-in-national/government-borrowing-from-federal-retirements-has-reached-206-billion They have done this a few times in the past and not just during a debt ceiling crisis. Some of you better at "googling" than I can find it. I remember one other time was in the spring, maybe 2004?, when the gov't ran short on cash around early march because lots of people getting returns already filed their taxes, but those that owed had not yet. So what prevents the Fed Gov't from borrowing this money for longer amounts of time? Something like the "Social Security Trust Fund" that is empty? This and the whole debt default issue has me reducing my TSP contributions and maxing out in IRA's and Roth IRA's in both my wife and my names.
