Princeton taught me to use language carefully and accurately, and I was therefore surprised that the Dec. 6 issue of PAW featured headlines both on the cover and in On the Campus describing the Republican tax plan as “tax reform.” “Reform,” according to Webster’s, means “to put or change into an improved form or condition.” Unfortunately, the tax bill being championed by Donald Trump and the Republican leadership does no such thing. The negative impacts that the plan would have on Princeton are just a tiny reflection of the negative impacts this plan would have on our country as a whole.
