Corbett’s pension plea/ ACA update


Guests: Marc Levy, Mary Agnes Carey

First, with Governor Corbett touring the state last week in an attempt to emphasize what he calls Pennsylvania’s “pension crisis,” we talk with MARC LEVY, Harrisburg reporter for the Associated Press, about the nature of Corbett’s concern. Levy will also provide some analysis on the state’s $50 billion public pension debt, which has been mounting for several years.  Then, we talk with Kaiser Health News’s MARY AGNES CAREY about the recent developments in the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, which was made more complicated last week by two, seemingly contradictory, federal court rulings.
