Does Harvard Hate ObamaCare?

, Malcolm A. Kline, 2 Comments

Harvard not only educated the president but has steadfastly supported him and even his more controversial policies, until now.

“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,” Robert Pear reported in The New York Times on January 5, 2015. “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.”

“Everyone knows ObamaCare itself was more than 2,000 pages,” Hadley Heath Manning of the Independent Women’s Forum pointed out last September. “But did you know that more than 20,000 pages of ObamaCare regulations have been promulgated?”

“Making things worse, many of these rules have been written, and then rewritten, rewritten, and rewritten again.” Manning is one of the instructors in AIA’s Women’s Studies Course.

Apparently, the faculty at Harvard is just catching up to the fine print they inspired.
