😡💻🔥As some of you know, the Republicans in the House just passed a tax bill that will devastate graduate research in the United States. Ph.D 👨🏾🎓👩🏻🎓students like myself are only taxed 💲on our stipends, not our tuition because it is paid for by our Universities. Under this tax plan grad students would owe taxes on years of tuition😩, after normally already being in debt from undergrad😭. This will make meeting living expenses nearly impossible, barring all but the wealthiest students 🤑from pursuing graduate studies. And even if Universities end up covering this expense, they would need to reduce the number of graduate students to afford it🙍🏼. Do we really want to chance condemning the country to ignorance? Less education means less research, less life-saving technology, less discovery, advancement and innovation. It's not too late though🕑, please call your senators!! 📢Tell them you believe in education and that everyone should have an opportunity to meet their full potential. If you made it to the end of this thank you🙏🏻, you're awesome 🙌🏼!
