It’s hard not to smile at this story.
There is wailing and gnashing of teeth at Harvard University the very heart of Liberland. It seems that the benevolent folks at the august university have just realized that the same Obamacare they helped push down our throats will now be choking them as well. “Schaddenfreude” comes to mind. The word has a nice comforting ring to it. It means enjoying the misery of another person.
The “Eat your spinach experts” in Cambridge have realized that the provisions of Obamcare require them to pay more for less just as the rest of us have to. Harvard’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences voted to oppose the school’s plans to charge them higher rates than they had been enjoying, the only reason for the increase being their Imperial Lord’s Affordable Care Act.
The best part of the story is that their protest, just as our protests, means nothing and the higher costs will kick in as planned this month anyway.
Stunned that such a “generous” employer as Harvard would pass along costs for the shoddy care these dainty souls will soon be receiving, some have been grumbling out loud.
Professor Richard F. Thomas, who is recognized world over as a leading authority on Virgil, was outraged enough to call the new fee schedule, “deplorable, deeply regressive, a sign of the corporatization of the university.” Of course, this fool doesn’t realize that the Harvard “corporation” has been over paying for many years but that is another story. Another professor, one who teaches “The History of Modern France,” bleated that, “this pay cut will be timed to come at precisely the moment when you are sick, stressed or facing the challenges of being a new parent,” wow, such clarity of thought!
There is a certain irresistible pleasure that comes from seeing those who would presume to tell us what is best for us, suddenly being subjected to the “beneficial” hand of the Almighty Government.
There will certainly be more of this as Obamacare burns through the lives of innocent Americans made victims of stupid unworkable liberal slop; but maybe it will help us get rid of Obamacare.
