Millions on the sidelines for big health care push

Millions on the sidelines for big health care push

WASHINGTON (AP) — Alan Thacker wants health coverage, but he can't get help in his home state of Georgia.

Mary Moscarello Gutierrez no longer can afford insurance in New Jersey.

Justin Thompson of Utah refuses to be forced into the president's health law.

Millions of Americans will remain uninsured despite this week's final push to enroll them under the health law.

Living in Florida, 63-year-old Jim Culberson has weathered heart attacks and cancer and says he barely scrapes by selling military histories and collectibles. He says he'd like health insurance if he could afford it — just not through Obama's law.

Culberson's younger brother, John, is a Texas congressman pushing for repeal of the health care law. He says he'll pay the uninsured penalty until he can enroll in Medicare in two years.
