The GOP Tax Bill is Bad News for Students, Educators, and the Middle Class

To pay for massive tax cuts for the wealthy, the GOP tax bills would...
Kill state and local deductions, risking $25 billion to $37 billion per year in funding for primary and secondary schools, and putting 250,000 to 370,000 educator jobs at risk.
Eliminate the deduction for educators who pay out of their own pocket for classroom materials.
End the deduction for interest paid on student loans.
Take money away from public schools to fund a private school voucher program favored by Betsy DeVos.
Cause 13 million Americans to lose health care coverage, including 5 million on Medicaid.
