Obamacare Recruiters Seek Uninsured At Food Fairs And Churches
Kaiser Health News

For the past week, Henry Bowles has stood along a busy road here six hours a day holding a sign that reads “Obamacare Help Center- Free Enrollment” and points to a nearby insurance agency.

With sunny skies and temperatures in the high 80s, Bowles uses a towel to grip the wooden stick bearing the sign so his sweaty hand won’t slip. He is paid about $8 an hour. Bowles, 45, is uninsured.

Money is not the reason as he tells it, although he discloses he didn’t file his taxes last year because his income wasn’t high enough.
