Hey! Normally wouldn’t post this stuff amidst the glory that is Star Wars, but I’m having a good, old fashioned freak out and would love your help. If you live in the trash fire that is America, consider the following:
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act that is currently festering in the Senate looks to harm a lot of people; for me, specifically, it looks to start taxing graduate student tuition waivers. Now, tuition waivers are what keep me from going deeper into massive, unwieldy debt. If I have my tuition waiver taxed (thereby increasing my perceived income by upwards of 300%), I’m going to have to drop out.
However, I dread calling my Senators and begging them to have a heart. Thus, ResistBot! By texting the number above (50409 in purple), I can take my time writing out my desperate plea to the United States Government.
It would mean a lot if you could do the same, or at least spread the word. I’m scared and stressed, and while Star Wars is a great boon, I wouldn’t be getting the message of the movies if I didn’t rebel.
