If my loans were absolved, I'd quit my job today for 1k a month.

I don’t have a car. I walk to work. Big deal. Burning fossil fuel is bull**** anyway.

but on the topic of fossil fuels

moving off of them into green energy is again something that should be prioritized over this form of UBI

I'm not saying he can't do all of the above, but that's not what his platform looks like

Yang is very much a numbers guy and wayyyyy more technical than Sanders. Having read a lot of his stuff, I can tell you that he's gone deep into the specifics but if you are concerned how he'll pay for UBI in a broad sense, his website talks about it.

Bruh I don't know what the cost of living is where you live but it would literally as in actually double income for people working 39 hours on minimum wage where I live. That's really big ****. Maybe it wouldn't be so big for people living in New York and Cali but it would be a major lifestyle change for people living in a lot of conservative areas with low minimum wage. Even if it didn't solve poverty it would be a huge step towards changing attitudes towards socialism.

You can change minimum wage all you want but it won't have the same kick in the balls as giving people an extra thousand dollars a month. If you're bummed at it going to middle class people who'll just be happy to buy another car or whatever then that's a small sacrifice but if you're pissed about a very small amount of rich people having a bit of extra pocket change then I think you're missing the forest for the trees.

Seriously if I had a thousand dollars a month coming in I'd be a lot less scared to get an apartment with a roommate and live off PBJ's since I'd know that I wouldn't be in danger of losing my job and being stuck in a now ****ed situation.
