Several years ago I inherited about $70K in E bonds -- Individual bonds stop earning interest starting in 2013 and finish in 2024. The interest rates are OK compared to current Money Market and CDs and until recently they've been a little pillow in the background of my nestegg. The possibility of default (surprise!) has made me nervous. Obviously, I don't want to cash in the bonds and take the tax hit but I wonder if I'm being foolish or Foolish.I also have about $20,000 in I bonds purchased about 6-8 years ago.So I'm sitting tight and hoping for a modicum of sense from Washington. Opinion? Please...
