It's not the same thing at all. 300 million people doing their own thing is not the same as 10 million fighting for one cause, 10 million fighting for another cause, so on and so forth. Individualism is the theme of today. Nothing can ever be accomplished with this widespread mentality.

It should read, "Are you going to get health insurance because the Affordable Care Act requires it?" or "Are you going to be buying health insurance simply because it is required by law?" or "Are you buying health insurance because of an idea introduced by Mitt Romney?"
Veteran's have excellent VA healthcare benefits and don't need to sign up for Obamacare.
All other avenues were used to try and get rid of the mandate in Obamacare. People went through the courts, the courts ultimately ended up calling it a tax when EVERYONE knows damn well its not. People have tried to get it repealed over 40 times since it was enacted. Failed every time. The only other recourse left to The People is to protest in the same form that thousands of others protested laws in the past. Ignore the law in question.

Stop being so dramatic about this. Nobody will organize over this. It just isn't going to happen.

Anyway, your poll didn't ask folks to specify but I imagine that most of the people answering "no" are not saying they're deciding to go uninsured as some kind of protest, they're saying that other factors dominated their decision to carry insurance next year (I count myself in this group).
I already have it, but if I didn't, I wouldn't. I'd rather pay the fine than something that I don't need or want. Screw Obamacare.
