Healthcare holdouts: Uninsured but resisting
The health insurance market websites may be crashing under the weight of people trying to log in, but plenty of uninsured Americans aren't eager to try out Obamacare, no matter how often the federal government says 'Try it, you'll like it'. They say even if they do eventually sign up, it will be reluctantly. "I don't think that the government should be involved in health care or health insurance," says Greg Collett, a 41-year-old software developer in Caldwell, Idaho, who would rather pay the fine for now -- $95 the first year -- than signup.
