To the editor:
In response to a recent article about the new health care bill I would like to point out that every branch of government has had to adapt to the new circumstances of the present times. The true question that the health care bill proposes is, "Can the constitution or the judicial branch of government be applicable to the modern 21st century?"
Right now in my American Government class at Lebanon Valley College we are learning that, yes, the Supreme Court has the power to overturn the bill and not accept it, but the Supreme Court also will not jeopardize their good name/standing with the American people.
This health care bill is monumental. If the person who wrote the recent article has children they should know that the health care bill will benefit their child when they get to college. If the health care bill is not passed college students like myself and my friends will not be able to stay on our parent's healthcare through our years as collegians.
I agree that there are some major cons in the bill, but if you dig a little deeper there are some major pros as well.
