You have effectively summed it up: "I use post tax dollars and never have to worry about taxes again." As long as congress doesn't change the rules, this is the best benefit they've given up, ever.

I converted my former traditional IRA to a Roth IRA last year. I hold exclusively individual stocks through my no-IRA-fee broker. Low transaction costs. No service. Just a monthly statement.
