Tell Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan: 'The GOP Tax Scam is a disaster for students and borrowers'
To be delivered to Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Speaker Paul Ryan


Dear Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Speaker Paul Ryan,
I am writing to express my strong opposition to the recently passed GOP tax bill.
Your GOP tax bill will add over $1 trillion to the national deficit. This money would be better used to cancel nearly all of America’s existing student loan debt.
Your tax bill would eliminate the health insurance mandate, kicking the legs out from under the Affordable Care Act and causing 13 million Americans to lose coverage.
Also, your bill will create severe cuts to state budgets all over the country. Decreasing public investment in higher education means students and their families will be forced to shoulder the increasing cost of college.
I will not accept future attacks on students, borrowers, and all hard-working Americans.
Enough is enough.
