    I agree there was a time we needed typewriter repairmen, there was a time we needed unions; we don’t need them anymore—these agents need to look for another line of work—the writing is on the wall or I should say the writing is in Obamacare.

    I'm not surprised by this; the entire thing's been a debacle since its inception (though I'm in favor of healthcare reform in general, including government intervention).

    What does surprise me is how many businesses continue to need "agents" in this age of internet purchasing.

    The airline industry is one that made the leap; though travel agents still exist they're much rarer than they used to be. Other businesses seem to be far behind, including insurance, tax preparers, etc.

    But the day is coming.
