We're #27!

Good news! Governor Deadmanwalking is agreeing to Medicaid expansion in PA! in practice, this just means that the expansion in Pennsylvania will happen a few months sooner. At least now we won't have to wait for Tom Wolf to kick his ass before it happens.

UPDATE (8/29/14): This article has more details about the terms of medicaid expansion in PA. Making expanded medicaid people purchase private insurance with public money rather than just extending the existing medicaid program to cover them seems like a pretty crappy and wasteful way way to do it. But at least it will get more people coverage and there's at least a chance that more sanity will reign when after Wolf gets sworn in next year.
