Hey, wait! We didn't mean us!!

Harvard experts on ObumbleCare who opening advocated for the "remedies" involved in such are now -- wait for it! -- AGHAST that said remedies will now be applied to them:

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.

Richard F. Thomas, a professor of classics "called the changes 'deplorable, deeply regressive, a sign of the corporatization of the university.'”

Mary D. Lewis, a professor of modern France history and a leader of the opposition to the benefit changes, said the changes "were tantamount to a pay cut."

“Moreover,” she said, “this pay cut will be timed to come at precisely the moment when you are sick, stressed or facing the challenges of being a new parent.”

Yeah? Well, get bent. Welcome to the real freakin' world -- and in this case, one which you helped make.
