Oh. Now It's Taxing The Sick

Got it.

"For years, Harvard’s experts on health economics and policy have advised presidents and Congress on how to provide health benefits to the nation at a reasonable cost. But those remedies will now be applied to the Harvard faculty, and the professors are in an uproar.

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?"

But in her view, there are drawbacks to the Harvard plan and others like it that require consumers to pay a share of health care costs at the time of service. “Consumer cost-sharing is a blunt instrument,” Professor Rosenthal said. “It will save money, but we have strong evidence that when faced with high out-of-pocket costs, consumers make choices that do not appear to be in their best interests in terms of health.”

"Richard F. Thomas...called the changes "deplorable, deeply regressive, a sign of the corporatization of the university."

So. A law passed exclusively by the government, uniquely by one party without popular consent is the fault of...corporations?

My do I loathe progressives. Not because they're progressives but because they're such whiny, lying sacks of irrational shits.

This is why academics must never know where the guns are or form any type of policy around them.

The salty tears. Delicious.

But the last word word belongs to Pollack at Breitbart:

Unfortunately for Harvard profs, karma is a pre-existing condition not covered by Obamacare."
