How ironic would it be if a college, a bastion of liberalism, got stung by ObamaCare mandates?  What if the professors, who program youth with the glories of socialism, had to live with the consequences of their policies?  Well, it has happened at Community College of Allegheny County.  Breitbart has the details, and the ir0ny…

Pennsylvania’s Community College of Allegheny County (CCAC) is slashing the hours of 400 adjunct instructors, support staff, and part-time instructors to dodge paying for Obamacare.

“It’s kind of a double whammy for us because we are facing a legal requirement [under the new law] to get health care and if the college is reducing our hours, we don’t have the money to pay for it,” said adjunct biology professor Adam Davis.

On Tuesday, CCAC employees were notified that Obamacare defines full-time employees as those working 30 hours or more per week and that on Dec. 31 temporary part-time employees will be cut back to 25 hours. The move will save an estimated $6 million. 

So then, these folks got what they voted for, and they aren’t happy about it.  I guess they didn’t take the time to find what we have know for a couple years, that ObamaCare was going to cost jobs and hours.  In the end, all we can say is…

Elections have consequences.

  • How right you are. Elections do have consequences and we are seeing them every day.

  • I found it sort of satisfying when I read this story and then thought about how the people who spread this liberal mindset are now starting to feel the results of the policies they supported. The irony was just too great not to savor, I know it is wrong to feel that way but these people got what they voted for so its hard to feel bad for them.

  • elections do have consequences. But, I am one of those that still holds Chief Justice Roberts in contempt. The Affordable Care Act was unconstitutional. Congress intended it to be a mandate under the commerce clause and they intended there to be fines and not taxes. Roberts ruled in that case the Act was unconstitutional, but decided that Congress really meant the Act to be a tax. So, elections do have consequences because, among other things, we elect presidents who can appoint Supreme Court justices. Presidents of both parties have done a lousy job of it. Roberts was wrong when he said it wasn’t the court¡s job to protect the citizens from their votes. That is exactly what the Court¡s job should be. We elect members of the House and the Senate. When they produce a bill that may be unconstitutional, they should warn the congress. If such a bill is passed anyway and if it is challenged and comes before the court, it is the Court’s duty to strike it down. Sadly, such is not the case.
