Perhaps there can be no better example of the boomerang effect of Obama’s so-called “Social Justice.” What goes around comes around.
Seriously dear readers, it just doesn’t get much better than this as we continue to watch ObamaCare implode.
This fiasco could represent the most classic case of unintended consequences of delusional ideas and programs from the left.
The very institutions that fawn over Obama and also do their best to brainwash our children, deal first-hand with the consequences of their careless promotion and support of ObamaCare.
Please forgive me if my compassion light has burned out but it was one of those compact flourescent jobs filled with mercury that is being removed by a HASMAT team as we speak.
The neighborhood had been completely evacuated and I’m writing to you from my WYFI connection while sitting on a rock which undoubtedly a liberal is hiding under. ;-)
Family Security Matters
When the Affordable Care Act passed in early 2010, many in academia-faculty and students alike-cheered on. But now that its provisions are going into effect, some of these same people are learning firsthand that Obamacare has some nasty side effects.
A new piece in the Wall Street Journal reports that many colleges are cutting back on the number of hours worked by adjunct professors, in order to avoid new requirements that they provide healthcare to anyone working over 30 hours per week. This is terrible news for a lot of people; 70 percent of professors work as adjuncts and many will now have to cope with a major pay cut just as requirements that they buy their own health insurance go into effect:
In Ohio, instructor Robert Balla faces a new cap on the number of hours he can teach at Stark State College. In a Dec. 6 letter, the North Canton school told him that “in order to avoid penalties under the Affordable Care Act… employees with part-time or adjunct status will not be assigned more than an average of 29 hours per week.”
Mr. Balla, a 41-year-old father of two, had taught seven English composition classes last semester, split between Stark State and two other area schools. This semester, his course load at Stark State is down to one instead of two as a result of the school’s new limit on hours, cutting his salary by about a total of $2,000.
Stark State’s move came as a blow to Mr. Balla, who said he earns about $40,000 a year and cannot afford health insurance.
