Message Subject "Universal Basic Income" makes sense even for Republicans IF they actually do the math.

Let's make this really easy.

There are 300 million people in the US. (There are more but let's keep the math simple.)

Do $1,000 per person and you're at 300 billion.

That's what you're paying out at $1,000 per person, PER MONTH!

Do it for a year and you're over 3.5 trillion.

Remember, you said Universal, not selective, everyone gets it.

Imagine the cottage industry you'll create for women having babies...

NOT EVERYONE. Under $24,000. READ OPs explanations. Very good idea and I think it would actually cost LESS by eliminating huge bureaucracies in each of those eliminated programs and eliminating non citizens from ANY benefits.
