Obamacare Hitting State Universities

Posted on January 24, 2013. Filed under: Obamacare, Politics | Tags: |

State universities are now getting on board with slashing worker’s hours in order to get out from under Obamacare.

What? Even state controlled entities are trying to get out from this monstrosity?

The original story comes from the Wall Street Journal (to which I don’t have a subscription).

According to the story, 70% of all college professors are so-called “adjunct professors“, meaning they don’t work full time to begin with.

So now these people are going to have their hours cut back, resulting in smaller paychecks, and to top it all off, they are going to be required to pay for their own health insurance.

“I think it goes against the spirit of the [health-care] law,” Mr. [Robert] Balla said. “In education, we’re working for the public good, we are public employees at a public institution; we should be the first ones to uphold the law, to set the example.”

This just keeps getting better and better. This is what you voted for, Mr. Balla. Stop whining and deal with it. This is your reality now.

Now you know why Congress, the President, and his family are exempt from it.

Proponents of single payer will say that this is why we need to go to a single payer system.

Like we don’t have enough debt already.
