Good questions but I'm getting over 2.5% tax free in an Arizona Municipal MM fund that has no Fed or State taxes. That doesn't include mutual funds and stocks that are performing somewhat better on the whole (some down, some up obviously) and several stocks that are sporting healthy dividends which are taxable at only 15% (i.e. MO, BAC).
