Federal Reserve: If They Don`t Buy U.S: Treasuries, Who Will?

If they don`t buy treasury bonds, who will? The biggest buyer of treasury bonds in the world is the Federal Reserve.

I mean nobody pays 2 & 20 to buy Treasuries. The only reason hedge funds are buying treasuries is because they are levered up, they are gambling.
