Corbett Won’t Set Up Obamacare Health Exchange

The governor announced today that Pennsylvania will refuse to set up the state health care exchange available through the Affordable Care Act. The exchanges are online marketplace that individuals and businesses can use to shop comparatively for private health insurance plans. In 2010, as Attorney General, Corbett sued to overturn the law, while later vowing to implement it fully as Governor. If Corbett is worried about the law’s federal overreach, resisting the exchanges might not be the savviest move: Now the feds will just run the exchange for him. [ABC 6]
