Educators Hit by ObamaCare


Recommended Posts

educators_hit_by_obamacare.htmlAmerican Thinker:

Far too many teachers are uniformly uninquisitive. And, sadly, their vote for Obama is coming back to bite them as the consequences of the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) are finally dawning on many of them.

When ObamaCare finally goes into effect in January 2014, if an employer does not supply health care to employees working 30 hours or more a week, the employer will have to pay a penalty.

Logic would dictate that an employer will not pay a penalty if there is an alternative. Ergo, colleges and universities across the country are now cutting back on the number of credits that adjunct instructors can teach per semester. The American Federation of Teachers (AFT), a big-time supporter of Obama, basically sold its members a bill of goods. Now Craig Smith, director of higher education for the AFT, claims that since many in academe "talk more about credit hours and course loads than hours worked, more clarification is needed."

A tad late, Mr. Smith. What were the legal hotshots at AFT thinking when the union so blindly threw its support behind Obama? A few tidbits from the AFT site clearly display their ignorance of the health law, as its members were told that:

... [v]ery little will change about how your healthcare is provided. Most health insurance will continue to come from private companies. Ownership and control of hospitals and doctors' offices will stay the same....

If you're currently covered by health insurance, nothing will be taken away as a result of the new health reform law.Scissors-32x32.png
