Oh no, I get it.

It's like anything else. It will wreck the economy and create problems they then have to fix with more control until they have to finally control it all as was always the aim. They'll blame free market capitalism while we head that way though. Everything they do would work beautifully except for unrestrained capitalism.

I saw that story linked on Drudge last night.
He’s got a lot of ideas on his policy page. Some very questionable, some seem reachable.
When you go to all the other candidates policy pages, there is a picture of Trump with the caption “Orange man bad”

That's all, just a $1,000, that's like nothing. What a waste.

The Vat increases the price of goods across the boards.

So what, did Yang argue for an UBI as well?

The financial transaction tax /Capital gains tax SCREWS middle class pensions,IRA's 401ks.

You really have a different problem if a FTT screws with your pensions already.

Then there's the 'prosperity Grants'.

An UBI would create more revenue in taxes and it will boost the economy.

There isn't enough money to pay for the snip he wants, and it has a destructive compounding effect destroy everything, and everyone.

Oh, the hysteria!

In times of quantitative easing and increased military spending you look like an idiot perpetuating this line of common myths. Just saying.

Tissue or cookie?

Yang's "Freedom Dividend" will never work. He claims to be great at math but I doubt that.

Est. 2018 US Population: 327,167,434
2008 US Pop: 308,758,105

22.6% of the population is under 18. That means 77.4% are over the age of 18.

327m x .774 = 253,227,593.916 Americans x $12k = 3,038,731,126,992 or over 3 trillion per year.

308m x .774 = 238,978,773.27 Americans x $12k = 2,867,745,279,240 or $2.8 trillion per year.

The entire US GDP is only $19.4 trillion per year.

Does he really think he can tax tech companies that much to pay for his UBI, on top of free healthcare and free or reduced higher education? Not going to happen.
