With the hours counting down to the latest deadline for open enrollment for Obamacare coverage, it appears the administration needs more keg-standing bro's, easy women, and twerking Richard Simmons to get the message out. A new survey by Kaiser finds 6 out of 10 unaware of the deadline. When reminded of the mandate and the deadline, half of those without coverage as of mid-March say they think they will remain uninsured.
Some other key findings from the report include:
- A stunning 67% of those uninsured between the ages of 18 and 64 say they have not tried to obtain healthcare insurance in the last six months
- Unfavorable views of the law continue to outpace favorable ones, the gap between negative and positive views now stands at eight percentage points
- A third of those who lack coverage as of mid-March are unaware that the law requires nearly all Americans to have health insurance or pay a fine
Perhaps this sums it up best...
