The Republican tax plan puts graduate students, scientific research and the future of America in peril

As we’ve discussed, House Republicans have passed a $1.5 trillion tax cut that, if signed into law, would, among other things, take health care coverage from 13 million Americans and raise taxes on the middle class.
