Long term treasuries is best answer.
Laddered maturities are not the best and corporates are a nono.
The paradym has changed the 30 year treasure yield is going down. The government is taking lots of them out of circulation.
1. HD. Watch out for capital gains. Might only want to sell when you need cash.
2, High yield tax free Bonds are good. You can get them with yield as good as Money market rates.
