Most individuals and families who did not have health coverage still don't.

With three days until the deadline, six million Americans have enrolled in Obamacare.

But six million is just a quarter of those eligible for subsidies.

Three out of four have yet to enroll.

As March 31st looms, they're looking but not buying because of the cost, says an industry expert.

"A family of four making $59,000 a year still has to pay $5,000 a year net of subsidies. How many people making that kind of money have that much money in their checking account?" asked Robert Laszewski, president of Health Policy and Strategy Associates.

Just 26 percent of Americans support the Affordable Care Act, in a new AP poll.

This marks the lowest approval yet for Obamacare.
