Would you rather be treated by a doctor who graduated from medical school and passed the medical boards, or would you be just as happy being treated by me? After all, you don't know if I'm a competent doctor or not, right?

I'm not arguing that employers should accept FSA-GIs right now. I'm just saying throwing out the statement that they haven't produced competent actuaries yet is meaningless and inflammatory, since they haven't produced the actuaries yet.
