    The yes answers would indicate people who bought insurance in order to comply with the law. The no answers would indicate people who still won't buy insurance even though the Affordable Care Act requires it. If all of those no answers are from people who have had insurance for years then the poll makes absolutely no sense to me.

    Perhaps this poll needs to be redone. Maybe it's not as simple as yes or no. Perhaps this was his intent but I don't see what insight he gathered if the no answers are so widely diverse in character.
    I was also confused by the original question wording and that is why I asked what I did. Then, when I said NO, I explained the basis of my "NO" response.

    Then things went downhill......as things tend to do.

    Um, she said she JUST CHANGED JOBS. Where do you get no income out of that? Don't you read what you respond to?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Leave Texas, from what you have told us about your income and net worth, you'd qualify for a 100% subsidy.

    Voted No.

    I have had health insurance most of my life. So no I don't have insurance because of Obamacare. I have it for the many of the same reasons I have car insurance. To have some level of protection against a major financial hit.

    Simple No, but I would like to add my explanation so I don't sound like a cheap skate or a smart ass: The cost of health care can not be fair and normal until the government liberates itself from pharmaceutical industry, and as such I know that I will only get screwed. You now need a prescription to get eye drops, and a doctors visit for that cost my father $1,100 in the 90's in Philadelphia. when this issue will be addressed and solved, I will consider being fair and getting health insurance. until then I vote like 90% of Americans in this poll
