    health insurance out of principle?

    Hard for me to believe.

    I can see people refusing to buy life insurance in spite of the law, but only if they weren't going to buy it anyway.

    That's not exactly the same as out of principle.

      She's the lady who was cited as an example by Cathy McMorris Rodgers, the Republican representative from Washington who gave the official GOP response to the State of the Union speech.

      She apparently didn't shop for insurance on the official AHA web site out of principle:

      “I wouldn’t go on that Obama website at all,” said Grenier, 58, who lives in the Chattaroy area and owns a roofing company with her husband. “We liked our old plan. It worked for us, but they can’t offer it anymore.”
      That's from the second link above.

      We're all pretty strange one way or another; some of us just hide it better. "Normal" is a dryer setting.

        There is no need to go to the exchanges whatsoever.
        You can buy insurance anywhere.
