    The article quote:
    "Well known investment guru John Bogle (founder of Vanguard Funds) said that the TSP’s index funds are a great way to invest. In an interview ten years ago, Bogle stated that the TSP is “…as close to a perfect retirement plan as you can have….”

    TSP is not even our "retirement plan".
    Its only 1 of 3 retirement vehicles we have. FERS defined pension, for most people, who sadly don't contribute too much, invest poorly, or withdraw early with penalty for personal reasons, will be their largest monthly portion.
    It probably would be appropriate to say "FERS" is as close to a perfect retirement plan one could have...the stability of the FERS pension and Social Security monthly payments, combined with the potential to accumulate a million dollars in your TSP if you do things right.
    CURRENTLY 100% G (as of COB 7/14/17)

    Spot on FWM, this site has been fantastic resource in getting my TSP on track. For instance, Tom is talking of a pull back, Amoeba a correction, Coolhand is thinking we're near a top, Ripper went to G yesterday, as did you and I on Friday. Pretty good consensus and indication of where to be, especially for folks new to the TSP. Curious if the heathcare soap opera will derail tax cuts and take the Trump bump back to election day levels... hmmmmmmmm.....

    Not wanting to turn your site political but for investment purposes if they do a repeal and no plan in place I think the market will have a problem. Also the debt ceiling will be a contributor as it gets closer to September 30th without resolution.
    May the force be with us.
