This bill isn't helping the middle class at all. It's ESPECIALLY hurting graduate students by taxing their tuition waivers as income. Now if you make $30,000 and have a tuition of 50,000, instead of paying taxes only on your income you'll be paying taxes on 80,000 dollars while you still only make 30,000! How is this helping us? If this provision is passed thousands of graduate students could leave as they can no longer afford their education and America's standing in the world on science and research will plummet!
