Obamacare spikes Guilford College

Student healthcare costs at Guilford College will rise 75 percent due as a result of implementation of President Obama’s signature legislative achievement, the Affordable Care Act.

Money quote from Guilford VP for Finance Greg Bursavich:

“[T]he notion that the health care law wouldn’t cost everybody more money is nonsense,” said Bursavich. “[You can’t] begin adding coverage on things that used to not be covered and just assume that some genie in the sky is going to pay for it. We are all paying for it and this is the beginning.”

I don’t know Mr. Bursavich —for all I know his politics might be right in line with mine. But anyone who’s lived in Greensboro for any amount of time will find it surprising that a Guilford College official would make such a statement.

    The comments below the source post are telling. Seems like this reporter is just regurgitating what the GC spokesman is saying, without any context or investigation.

    Just what services are now required that is driving the cost up?

    it does come from the Fed Genie in the Sky. Ali Geitner puts paper in a machine and voila out pops free money.
