    True.

    I think it's disgusting that the government is marketing assistance. While I agree with help in navigating the maze of red tape, you should be the one that seeks it out. But the issue here is that the government is trying to expand its power base.

    I still find it ironic that social security is "credited" with keeping millions of seniors out of poverty. If I took 15% from you your entire life and then in your later years I started giving it back to you would I be lauded as a hero that saved you?

      Agreed on your second point though - but we already have the IRS.
      Clearly you don't frequent the McDuck's around the campus in downtown Denver - they're automated and have been for 5 years or more. Ditto the grocery stores around here. You can take your pick of human or machine. In either case, there are no "helpers". A store clerk will not advise you on food choices, food nutrition, food financing, or food preparation.

      Even the IRS admits that it doesn't have "helpers". It has clerks who are not bound by law to give YOU tax law interpretations that will stand up to its own audit process.

        Perhaps I don't understand what you mean by "helpers."

          I think the point is that none of us understand the real role of the thousands of "helpers" involved with Obamacare. Whatever it is, it probably won't be good.

            This whole thing is a non-story, even the article goes so far to bust every one of this guy's assertions. Someone punked his ass on Facebook and he's trying to pass it off as truth.

            There's enough bad in Obamacare to pass around without having to make crap up.
