It seems the nation’s first half-black president continues to do no favors for his black constituents. According to an article in Campus Reform, one of the nation’s most venerable historically-black colleges has been forced to drop student health insurance due to the high cost of the (un-)Affordable Care Act:
Bowie State University has suspended offering health insurance for domestic students for the 2013-2014 academic year,” states the school’s official website. “Due to new requirements of the Affordable Care Act which will go into effect on January 1, 2014, the cost of insurance for domestic students will increase to approximately $1800 per year.
Obamacare regulations mean insurance costs for students will rise from $50 per student per semester to $900. Can’t really blame the college for dropping the benefit.
Yes, it’s more bad news for the black community, courtesy of Barack Obama. Remember, one of the president’s first actions upon taking office was cancelling the DC school voucher program, cutting off access to better schools and freedom of choice.
As we reported recently, Obama can’t even abide most of his own Congressional Black Caucus peers, or his race-baiting sycophants Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson – who he brands as “professional blacks.” Does that mean he considers himself “unprofessional?” With his plummeting approval ratings, it appears more and more Americans – black, white and in between – are agreeing with him.
