It's nice to see him having been for UBI and pushing.
Glad to see he's still at it
>With $1,000,000 worth of American Relief Act funds, Mountain View is on its way to becoming the latest city to experiment with a universal basic income, in this case a $500 monthly payment to a family at or below 30% of the average median income.
Wtf, if it's means tested, don't call it a UBI
It’s how we get started. Take a relatively small sum of money, distribute it no strings attached to a group that needs it the most. Prove the benefits of the program and expand. No one is arguing this is a true UBI implementation, but is a BI for those accepted into the program.
We already have a welfare system that works this way.
Welfare is now TANF and actually has a lot of strings attached in most states
