    Not yet, I'm waiting for the affordable part to kick in.

    I don't understand what the motivation would be for young people.

    No, I'm going to get health insurance because I need it.

    Although part of me is happy that the mandate will kick in soon. I like to think of it as a mixture of a "poor tax" and a "stupid tax". It's quid pro quo. He gave all the meek Obama voters everything they could want, and this is just a form of reimbursement.

    Not quite yet. I recently changed jobs, and am not really sure what I will do about health insurance. I may just pay the fine for now.

    I'm keeping my crappy AARP Supplemental Insurance for the time being. non-ACA approved as a "junk" policy, and it is, but it's cheap.
    I'm self employed, and i keep myself as healthy as I can, so far I've managed to live without a compehensive plan.

    I'd like to make it to Medicare, in a few years and not go the Medicade route,
    I had a free clinic before this, so if I gotta pay more I will (being way ahead of the costs game for my age), but I'm not making any hasty decision.
    Figure I'm good at least for another year with this junk.

    I think health insurance is a huge scam. I already signed up for health insurance for the first time in my life. My policy takes effect January 1, 2014. I do think it is important to obey the law. Our leaders make decisions with the best interest of the country at heart. Even a bad plan works better when we all do the thing we are supposed to do.

    Yes. I will get health insurance just because Obamacare mandates it. You bet. Working together as Americans is a patriotic thing to do. Just because I disagree with it, don't understand it or have a better idea doesn't mean I should sabotage my country. That's a very destructive mentality to have. Great empires always collapse from within. It doesn't bother me too much when we have dissenting opinions. It does break my heart when people refuse to do the patriotic thing just because it's inconvenient or too costly. Be an American. Obey the law. The more no's that I see in this poll, the sadder I get.

    Did I mention that I believe all insurance salesman should be tortured 18 hours a day for 20 years and then be released on the condition that they stop being disgusting scam artist? I hate health insurance with a burning passion in my belly but I bought a policy to comply with the law.

    Make sense? I don't have to get my way all the time. There is such thing as being a grown up.

    I will pay the fine. Plus I will wait until all the bugs get worked out, actually set in stone and it becomes affordable.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    I honestly have my doubts that the bolded will ever happen.
