“Conservative estimates are that this will run up the deficit by another half a trillion dollars” he wrote. “Our generation should not be forced to pay for the sins of our fathers.”

“It will be many years before we see any increased coverage for the average American, but in the next fiscal year increased tax rates will be immediate,” Bogren added.

Other students expressed support for the legislation.

School of Art & Design senior Amariah Stepter said that though she is unsure of how other students are reacting to the legislation, she is in support of it.

“I thought it was a good move and think it will be a positive move for our country,” she said.

LSA senior Coertney Vanderhill said she’s also in support of the bill.

“I think we’re the only industrialized country that doesn’t have (national health care) yet, and for me that doesn’t make sense that we don’t,” she said.

LSA junior Kunal Varna said though the bill could have negative consequences he is in support of it overall.

“Initially I think it’s going to be hard to adjust,” he said. “There might be some negative implications, but in the long run it should help the nation as a whole.”
