As Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius continues to bribe private companies to fund ObamaCare, the majority of Americans say they don't want more health insurance but rather a larger paycheck. More from Rasmussen Reports:

While employers wrestle with ways to meet the requirements of President Obama's health care law, most Americans want the option of less health insurance coverage and more take home pay.

If they had a choice, 59% of Likely U.S. Voters would choose a less expensive health insurance plan that covered only major medical expenses and a bigger paycheck. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 31% would opt instead for a more expensive insurance policy that covered just about everything and receive a smaller paycheck.

As a reminder, starting in 2014 people without health insurance will be forced to either purchase health insurance or pay a fine. Both options require paying more.

Beginning in 2014, the Affordable Care Act includes a mandate for most individuals to have health insurance or potentially pay a penalty for noncompliance. Individuals will be required to maintain minimum essential coverage for themselves and their dependents. Some individuals will be exempt from the mandate or the penalty, while others may be given financial assistance to help them pay for the cost of health insurance.
