California has UBI on the table
LINK

quote:

A proposed California law would provide most adults in the state with a universal basic income (UBI) of $1,000 per month, similar to the proposed plan of former presidential candidate Andrew Yang.

Good. Then the cost of goods and services will go up all over the state and then the state will have to control that too.

most adults


If it’s “most” and not “all” then it’s not UBI. It’s wealth redistribution

The program would be paid for with a state value-added tax of 10 percent on goods and services, with exemptions for groceries, medicine, medical supplies, clothing, textbooks and other items. Recipients of several programs, including the state's Medicaid plan, would be ineligible

It applies to everyone over the age of 18 not already on a state welfare program. Note is says residents. So assume illegals will qualify.

Oh, and the best part? It's going to be funded by a state 10% VAT.

Enjoy yet another tax increase to pay for your "free" money California baws.

Sounds like I'm about to have a phony residence setup in California pretty soon.

Think I'll use my extra 1K on Patreon Whores.

California drug dealers wholly support the initiative.

Wtf. I just moved back to California for a job and the insanity has gotten worse in 5 years. The whole state has TDS and apparently do not it realize we're in crap shape. Homelessness is everywhere, even in my nice community.

re: California has UBI on the table
I’m glad. I’d rather all these bull shite policies get tried out in a couple of states first, before they try to ram that shite down our throats nationwide. That being said, if they pass it, it will never “fail”. There will always be a reason it didn’t work that has nothing to do with the policy itself and it will, most likely, somehow be a republicans fault.

re: California has UBI on the table
The hypocrisy of Silicon Valley will never end

1- overpriced housing to reward only those people who own or are in the upper echelon of their tech businesses - encourages homelessness in their cities

2- exacerbating number 2- permissive policing - encouragement of homelessness in their cities

3- ridiculous 1099/independent contractor laws disguised as “help” for “employees”-

result: discouraging creativity benefitting entrepreneurs and instead requiring people to marry themselves to Utopian businesses that don’t really make anything you can touch, but want to tell everyone else how to live (for their protection of course)

4- gvt paying people to do nothing, further compounding the disincentive above in pt 3 for people to live their lives independently of gvt and these fascist fricking spying invasive “tech businesses.”

God I hate leftists. I hate the way they approach business and life. They want everyone to be the same, think the same, want the same, do the same. So they can put us on a spread sheet and control us. The worst? Like any fricking abusers, they tell you, it’s for your own good. frick you California.

They just cannot see how disrespectful they are of the humanity of their fellow man. There’s no encouragement or reward for thinking for yourself. Their entire world view is that everyone MUST think the same way.

I don’t hate anyone. Except these fricking people.

So rent will be going up $1000? Of course to compensate for that, UBI will go up to $2000, supported by a 20% VAT.
Then rent will go up again...rinse and repeat.

re: California has UBI on the table
It was. But drug addiction and the resulting homelessness issue is rampant. The whole state has this issue. Really sad, LA is a third world city now. Tent cities out in the open and filth everywhere.
