If you are looking for 5 years CD, the CIT Bank has the highest APY at 2.2%.
Around Feb 2016 they had it at 2.25% but most rates went a bit down during March.

You do realize that both receipts and outlays grow along with population growth and also with inflation, right?

As a % of GDP revenues declined from 18.5% in 1980 to 17.6% in 1988, and from 20% in 2000 to 17.6% in 2008.

Retired early, traveling perpetually.
