    Guess what, friend. Everyone's incompetent. Public, private, it doesn't really make a difference. Grow up.
    In a perfect world, you are able to minimize the incompetency that affects you based on choices you make. In a liberal/progressive/Democratic world, you don't have the ability to make any choices.

    I make lots of choices. If you feel like you don't have the ability to make any choices, maybe it's time to re-examine your life.

    One choice I cannot make is whether I'm affected by IRS incompetency concerning Obamacare...neither can you.

    You bought a plan through healthcare.gov? That's somewhat surprising.

    Whether I did or not doesn't make me immune from IRS incompetency. But I'm not surprised you didn't have a response to my point...other than to talk about me.

    I don't understand. You just implied that you were affected by the subject of this thread. Which is about tax information that went to some of the healthcare.gov users.

    What the hell are you talking about?

    I'm talking about the differences between a perfect world and a liberal/progressive/Democratic world...as you would know if you actually understood what I wrote to you.

    I honestly have no idea what you're talking about. Are we in a "liberal/progressive/Democratic world" now? Were you affected by this IRS error, is that what you're saying? Or is that world hypothetical too? Or were you not affected but you feel like somehow you could've been?

    I really have no idea what your point is.

    LOL. Do you get alerts when someone makes a negative comment on Obamacare?
