Penn's tell

Incentives work pretty much the way everyone (especially Jonathan Gruber) thought, just ask the Governor of Pennsylvania;
Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf’s administration said Thursday that it will withdraw its application to take over some functions of the insurance marketplace created under the 2010 federal health care law now that the U.S. Supreme Court has upheld the law’s nationwide tax subsidies.
Pennsylvania had a contingency plan for the Supreme Court actually following the text of the law known as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010. I.e., it could read the plain English of, 'an Exchange created by a state' and act accordingly. Like grown-ups.

Now that John Roberts and company have hidden their eyes from that, Pennsylvania will save themselves some money. By letting George do it.
