Many Young Americans Still Unfamiliar With Health Law

A new Gallup poll reveals that 37 percent of American adults under 30 years old are unfamiliar with the Affordable Care Act.

The poll also found that people with lower incomes — who are more likely to be uninsured — are less familiar with the health care law than those with higher incomes.

The law is most likely to affect young Americans and people with lower incomes, both who apparently remain less familiar with the law than others.

Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson gets details on the poll from Gallup editor-in-chief Frank Newport.
