Robert wanted some examples of how this bill benefits the rich. We have provided them and can provide more. Equally important is how the GOP has searched to find money buckets to pay for the lost revenue. Here is one more example:
The tax bill hurts higher education, both because it taxes university endowments and because it treats graduate students’ tuition waivers — the value of the tuition most universities waive for their talented graduate students — as taxable income. Instead of being taxed on his $21,000 stipend as a teaching assistant, a grad student at the university where I teach will be taxed as if he were earning $50,000. Imagine earning a salary in the low 20s, and consider what it would be like to have about $800 taken out of each monthly paycheck.
