You’re about as likely to find a conservative on America’s university faculties as you are to find Michael Moore at a salad bar. But even in that liberal Valhalla, Obamacare is causing big problems. College professors were some of the biggest Obamacare backers. Many openly promoted it to captive students. But ugly reality is suddenly popping the elite academic bubble. Employers will be forced to provide health coverage to all employees who work over 30 hours a week. 70 percent of college professors work as adjunct professors, not tenured staffers. So the Wall Street Journal reports that all over America, universities are cutting adjunct professors to 29 hours a week to avoid the health care costs. Some complain that with that big pay cut, they can’t afford their own insurance. At least they’ll have plenty of company, since the academics will share the boat their policies created with a lot of newly part-time blue collar workers. Maybe next time, before they endorse a bill nobody’s read, they’ll ask the Economics professor what the word “unaffordable” means.
