The Bloomberg Consumer Comfort index inches up to -31.8 from -32.1, finishing 2012 at just about at the year's high. The index has put in what technicians might call a triple top, with three runs - one in early spring, one in the summer, and this one - into the low -30 area. With a bigger share of nearly all paychecks headed to D.C., we'll see if this resistance level can be broken in 2013.
