ObamaCare Hits Academia

Normally it would be highly inappropriate to guffaw at the fate of those who will be thrown out of work or have their hours dramatically cut as a result of ObamaCare. But considering that the percentage of academics who voted for Obama is probably in the 90s, an exception can be made for this:

Pennsylvania’s Community College of Allegheny County (CCAC) is slashing the hours of 400 adjunct instructors, support staff, and part-time instructors to dodge paying for Obamacare.

“It’s kind of a double whammy for us because we are facing a legal requirement [under the new law] to get health care and if the college is reducing our hours, we don’t have the money to pay for it,” said adjunct biology professor Adam Davis.

Neither does the college.

Tragically, FDR’s Great Depression and the Catastrophe of November 2012 taught us that the more liberals prolong economic hardship, the more certain they are of reelection.

The solution, says United Steelworkers representative Jeff Cech, is that adjunct professors should unionize in an attempt to thwart schools seeking similar cost-savings efforts from avoiding Obamacare.

Wonderful solution. Just ask the 18,500 people who were recently thrown out of work when Obama’s Big Union friends killed Hostess.


On a tip from G. Fox.

    Communists always have the same solution. Unionize. And, for the illusion of protection, workers get to be dupes and slaves. Perfect! They deserve every bit of it and more.

  2. Vic Kelley says:

    What bothers me most is that I choose not to participate in health care. I don’t go to regular doctors. It’s because of my concern for privacy. I don’t like dealing with file clerks, nurses, or doctors and giving them all of my personal and identity info.

    With this new obamacare people like me are forced to choose between obeying a law and breaking a law. It’s not fair. I don’t use the system. And I damn sure don’t want government telling me I have to be part of it in some way or another.

    And now doe some facts:

    “If the Democratic National Committee were to own a network and produce news programming designed to promote the party, it would look exactly like what MSNBC has become,” said Glenn Greenwald, who writes on civil liberties and national security for the very liberal, The Guardian.

    In an interview, Greenwald acknowledged that Hayes and Maddow have challenged the Democratic establishment position on occasion, but said the latter seemed more willing to do so in the past as a host on Air America, the defunct liberal radio network, and early on in her MSNBC career. “She used to criticize Democrats from the left constantly,” Greenwald said. “Now she does extremely rarely.”

    Speaking broadly about MSNBC’s programming, Greenwald said the network has “staffed their shows with not only hosts but regular guests who are the most loyal, reverent admirers of President Obama and who are single-handedly devoted to no real political principle or cause other than glorifying him and defending what he does, especially progressive RINO Joe Scarborough.” At times, he said, the network can feel “like watching televised Pravda at the height of the Brezhnev era,” a reference to the old Soviet propaganda arm…

    Earth to academia: We live and depend on a very real interdependent, fragile, living environment. It’s called the economy! If you pollute the actual real environment we live in we all suffer.

    Damn stupid ignorant collectivists are destroying our environment.

    Fuck em. I hope every bastard who voted for The Butcher of Benghazi gets exactly what they deserve, THE SHAFT, lubed with a vaseline and sand mix.

    Everyone should get used to BOcare because things are going to get a lot worse under his 16 year-old approach to fiscal “justice”.

    BOcare is going to be the tip of the iceberg.

    Keep in mind the SCOTUS was the last stopgap that could have kept the U.S. from full-blown socialism. The Justices allowed BOcare to go forward bc the gatekeepers assigned to enforce the restrictions mandated by the constitution, do not understand the constitution.

    We now will be getting a SCOTUS majority made up from probably another 2-3 BO nominees similar to the fatted hogs he selected in Kagen and Sotomayor–both despicable dirt-dwelling simians.

    Allow me to speculate here and suggest that probably less than 0.0000001% of the 96% blacks and 60% hispanics that were fundamental in the re-election of the Kenyan, had any clue that the U.S. even has a supreme court.

    All together now: Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!
    Ain’t that a bitch?

    Elections have consequences.

    So do radical agendas, and like a rattlesnake, they can double back and bite you.

    Note to all members of academia: In the world you’ve done so much to create (if you care to look at history), the first to go are the intellectuals. They used you to promote a system that will eliminate you. Sadly, there is no other country on earth that can come to your rescue when this happens. The last “shining city on the hill” was just condemned, the lights turned out and the iron hand of totalitarianism in full control.

    Give yourselves a big pat on the back. While you still can.

    Nah, leave out the vaseline. They hate hydrocarbons, remember?

    “…the more liberals prolong economic hardship, the more certain they are of reelection.”

    That’s their theory, their goal, in fact:

    Members of the Assembly Democrats’ progressive caucus were heard making candid, if not intemperate, statements such as one by Los Angeles Assemblyman Fabian Nunez that they may want to “precipitate a crisis” over the budget this year. That might persuade voters to lower the two-thirds vote threshold needed to pass a spending plan, he reasoned.

    “It seems to me if there’s going to be a crisis, the crisis should be this year,” Assemblywoman Jackie Goldberg, D-Los Angeles, said during the meeting. “What you do is you show people that you can’t get to this without a 55 percent vote.”
    The unintentional broadcast was interrupted when someone informed the group that a microphone was on. “Oh s–,” Goldberg said as the sound was cut.

    Pennsylvania’s Community College of Allegheny County (CCAC) is slashing the hours

    I’m not aware of any professors who are paid by the hour. The ones I know are salaried, and therefore will be thrilled for more paid time off.

  14. bob says:

    So, something that is wonderful in theory, from an idealistic academic standpoint, ends up being completely unworkable and thoroughly undesirable in the real world?

    Huh. Never woulda guessed THAT could happen.

  15. Bo-Jangles says:

    History will show that America was done in by, not communists or terrorists, but by their own weak and mindless voters.

  16. TTommy says:

    Perfect! And I’ll bet every one of those laid off voted for their messiah. Ironic isn’t it?

  17. No Mercy says:

    Highly inappropriate? Negative I’m going to laugh and rub their faces in shit every chance I get.

  18. fubar says:

    allegheny county is also a whole hearted participant in agenda 21. at least last i checked the Iclei website.

    we get what we vote for

  19. TexasDoc says:

    The assholes wanted Obama and now they suddenly have buyer’s remorse after they realized they screwed themselves.

    No empathy here. They were too damned stupid to check the fine print, and they are always telling us how much more intelligent they are as liberals. Shitheads.
