The intellectual elite of Harvard have tasted their own medicine, medicine from one of their own. Guess what? They don’t like it.
Liberalism is fine in theory, but in reality; it sucks. And the Liberals’ new healthcare baby is “fugly,” to say the least. That’s why Harvard elitists are squawking like caged chickens:
According to The New York Times:
Members of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, the heart of the 378-year-old university, voted overwhelmingly in November to oppose changes that would require them and thousands of other Harvard employees to pay more for health care. The university says the increases are in part a result of the Obama administration’s Affordable Care Act, which many Harvard professors championed.
The faculty vote came too late to stop the cost increases from taking effect this month, and the anger on campus remains focused on questions that are agitating many workplaces: How should the burden of health costs be shared by employers and employees? If employees have to bear more of the cost, will they skimp on medically necessary care, curtail the use of less valuable services, or both?
“Harvard is a microcosm of what’s happening in health care in the country,” said David M. Cutler, a health economist at the university who was an adviser to President Obama’s 2008 campaign. But only up to a point: Professors at Harvard have until now generally avoided the higher expenses that other employers have been passing on to employees. That makes the outrage among the faculty remarkable, Mr. Cutler said, because “Harvard was and remains a very generous employer.”
It’s funny how life is when it impacts you directly. These wackademics support Liberal policies, as long as the policies don’t impact them.
Here I thought the intellectual Leftists didn’t mind paying more than their fare share?
