I don't see any reason for anyone to buy Muni bonds ... we are in the 31% tax bracket

I'd be surprised to find a tax advantage in this tax bracket. These bonds will always be more valuable to people in the 36% and 39.6% brackets. These higher bracket individuals will always be willing to outbid you because the bonds are more valuable to them. It would require a true glut on the supply side for tax benefits to survive all the way down to 31%.
