Tax preparers are finding themselves on the front lines of encouraging Obamacare enrollment. That's because next year, under the Affordable Care Act, people will have to pay what could be a hefty tax penalty if they are uninsured for more than three months.

Do you think San Francisco should ban the sale of bottled water on public property?
Tap water would save city money, help the environment — and it tastes just as good, if not better.
