Look, I do not, repeat do NOT, like the idea that Obama “sees” the future of America in a small way. He said that years ago, and he may have decided that he had a choice; to be a low cost energy, low regulation President presiding over an exploding economy, or a high energy, high regulation, big central government liberal President trying to “balance” his new vision against the potential collapse of the economy.
It is really that simple.
And he chose the latter.
And now, as he starts his second term where he will refuse to deploy troops in any large and meaningful way (to save money) so he can grow his domestic programs, and will drain the resources and incomes of Americans to funds those programs you will see more of this.
If you want someone to lie to you and tell you how troubling it is when anyone’s income is cut in Obama’s economy, you’ll want to stop reading right about now. I’m only willing to go as far as to say that I wish ObamaCare wasn’t the cause of all this. But it simply is a beautiful thing to see the very institutions that carry Obama’s water and attempt to brainwash more of his minions, deal first-hand with the consequences of their thoughtless advocacy:
A new piece in the Wall Street Journal reports that many colleges are cutting back on the number of hours worked by adjunct professors, in order to avoid new requirements that they provide healthcare to anyone working over 30 hours per week. This is terrible news for a lot of people; 70 percent of professors work as adjuncts and many will now have to cope with a major pay cut just as requirements that they buy their own health insurance go into effect.
No, it’s not terrible news.
This is America. These people will get health care through ObamaCare, and no one’s going to starve.
Liberals mugged by reality is always welcome news.
In the end, his vision of America will result in a world we never imagined we would leave for our kids.
Shame on him.
And shame on us for being so greedy, weak and scared.
