Remember guys, capitalism should mean:
>The government takes care of everyone, but at the same time grants the freedom to its citizens of starting free enterprises as long as the government deems the business to not be risky or detrimental.
But instead, America has
>The government takes care of no one and says "FREE MARKET" like it is a magic spell, and then turns a blind eye while the rich use their "freedom" to fuck you over. In this case by bribing universities to make sure you have to pay for the most expensive textbooks.

If your tuition waiver is of 50k then you will be taxed an extra 10k. That means either anon pays 17k for taxes and health insurance and lives like a roach, or he stops paying for his health insurance to at least be able to afford toilet paper.

Firstly, you shouldn't speak politics on a science and math board. That's pathetic. Secondly, we have all of Republicans to thank for that - the GOP proposed that, not Trump specifically. I don't know about you, but under my current tax bracket, I will be paying less taxes next year under the reformed tax bill.
