Via Bizpac Review: Cornell students erupt over healthcare fee; ‘elections have consequences’ messages pour in
Sometimes, the best education is the one life gives you.
Students at the prestigious but liberal-leaning Cornell University found that out the hard way last week, when they stormed the office of school President David Skorton to protest a modern-day example of socialism at work.
On Feb. 5, Skorton posted a memo on the school’s website notifying students that all who opt out of Cornell’s health care program next year will be charged a $350 fee….
And, of course, the mocking on Twitter:
#fightthefee We tried to tell you costs would skyrocket, but people like you thought you knew better. Because Obama is so awesome.

You mean your socialist professors failed to mention that "Free" doesn't really mean "Free"? Vote Republican next time. #FightTheFee

Nothing warms my heart more than watching a bunch of spoiled brat liberal children getting an education money can’t buy!
In 2007, Motto magazine ranked Cornell’s motto as no. 1. “I would found an institution where any person can find instruction in any study,” http://news.cornell.edu/stories/2007/08/cornells-any-person-any-study-named-best-college-motto
Kudos to Cornell’s current President for upholding the motto relative to the 2010 Obamacare law.
Nowhere in the video do they mention 0bamaCare. Are they so naive? You never know with liberals. I suppose it makes about as much sense as “Day Hall is Liberated.”
