Jason Cherkis from The Huffington Post recently visited the Kentucky State Fair. While there he spent time at a booth set up by the state of Kentucky's health marketplace - Kynect. He returned with an amazing anecdote:



A middle-aged man in a red golf shirt shuffles up to a small folding table with gold trim, in a booth adorned with a flotilla of helium balloons, where government workers at the Kentucky State Fair are hawking the virtues ofKynect, the state’s health benefit exchange established by Obamacare.

The man is impressed. "This beats Obamacare I hope," he mutters to one of the workers.

“Do I burst his bubble?” wonders Reina Diaz-Dempsey, overseeing the operation. She doesn't. If he signs up, it's a win-win, whether he knows he's been ensnared by Obamacare or not.

Shhhhh. Don't tell him. It is a part of dreaded Obamacare. Reminds us of this infamous anti-Obamacare sign.
