Universities Slash Teachers' Hours to Evade ObamaCare
Breitbart ^ | January 22, 2012 | John Nolte

If you want someone to lie to you and tell you how troubling it is when anyone's income is cut in Obama's economy, you'll want to stop reading right about now. I'm only willing to go as far as to say that I wish ObamaCare wasn't the cause of all this. But it simply is a beautiful thing to see the very institutions that carry Obama's water and attempt to brainwash more of his minions, deal first-hand with the consequences of their thoughtless advocacy:

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.

No, it's not terrible news.

This is America. These people will get health care through ObamaCare, and no one's going to starve.

Liberals mugged by reality is always welcome news.

This would be a beautiful thing if some liberals would become awakened by this.

What they will conclude is that Obama needs to bring the hammer down and use Government force on the Eeeeeevil Grrrrrreeedy Bastages who did this.

Oh they are quite concerned about the whole thing. I work at a community college and in December they pulled in every part time or temporary full time employee and fired them all 3 days before Christmas.

Then told them they could all come back in January but could only work 20 hrs. a week and they could never have more than 100 hrs. in a calendar month.

The pissing and moaning from the staff and faculty was something to behold. My response when they started bellyaching to me was YOU ASKED FOR IT when you voted for your king and obamacare, I TOLD YOU SO.

Now the adjunct faculty are getting hit, more wailing and moaning. Welcome to the obama economy, isn’t it wonderful where if you can work 3 jobs 20 hrs a week suckers!

It’s fun and sad to watch their flailing about, being typical liberals and not knowing what to do to fix their screw up.

I am one of the few conservatives on campus and most leave me alone. I do not generally go around proclaiming my politics but on the other hand will not back down if a liberal shows up at my door wanting their rear end chewed out.

What have your two friends said about it? Do they have buyer’s remorse?

They haven’t discussed it in terms of Obamacare. I’m sure they know but they haven’t mentioned it.
