Harvard professors are in an uproar now that the health care advice they gave is being applied to them

WASHINGTON — 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. 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.

    Obamacare is for the unwashed peasants (who must pay higher fees), NOT for rich, well-paiid Harvard intellectuals. Harvard profs are part of the well-monied progressive elite.

    Suck it up princesses; you made this s**t sandwich you get to eat it. This just shows that the professors are all elitists, they want a system for the masses but they figure they are too good to have to live under the same system.

    Like all universities, Harvard pays shit to all but a small collection of rockstars. We’re talking associate profs who make $65k, postdoc fellows $27k, adjuncts paid by the hour. Unless you’re tenured in a well known department and you’ve made a few appearances on TV or some recorded event they pay horribly. In fact there’s quite a few non academic staff that either pay better or have more realistic time demands. Of course the academics look down their noses at the regular staffers but then they hop on their bicycles in the rain to peddle home to a shitty town house they share with 4 other losers.
