Yes, for those who are working but still need financial support. But not for people who are not working or making an effort to work.

The universal basic income program should be means tested and limited to those that are disadvantaged at the time. There should also be a requirement for those that are able to look for employment during this period. Upon gaining employment which is equal to or above the UBIP the payments should cease.

It should only be permitted during times of inflation for single parents and those who work low-income jobs.

@97YYL9X from Arizona answered…5 days

No, I feel like it should only be for people on government assistance.

Instead of a UBI, do not tax the first ___ amount of income that would go towards a projected cost of living including rent/mortgage and cost of things such as phone plans, home energy/gas, and food.

@97YQ4PB from North Carolina answered…5 days

No universal program, just for those who truly need it and are not taking advantage of the program.

@97YNRGG from Delaware answered…6 days

No, but there should be proper support systems for those in need and healthcare should be free.

@97YMKVQLibertarian from Michigan answered…6 days

It should be available to those that apply (one parent households, elders, disabled)

@97YL7K4 from Kentucky answered…6 days

Yes, because I feel it'll help families and people live well. Also, I believe that if there not doing anything and using that money for things inappropriately and harming others they should not get it. For example, people who use that money for drugs or not working or trying to work to make a livivng for themselves.

No, this will encourage people to not work. However, people who do work and can't afford things should be helped out in some ways.

@97YDKD3 from New York answered…6 days

Yes, but it should be only given to people that work, so it encourages people to get a job to boost economic growth.

UBI is inefficient when we could just use that money to provide housing, food and clothes to people.

@97Y6DTY from New York answered…6 days

Yes, so long as this does not serve as a replacement for other nationalized benefits and services such as universal healthcare

@97Y63GN from Ohio answered…6 days

Only for people who are disabled or unable to work so they can get the necessities they need to survive

@97Y5M5GIndependent from New York answered…6 days

No, but institute or expand similar programs based on income, so that those living in poverty or working close to or at minimum wage jobs are able to pay for food and housing, without making too costly of a program.

Yes, but it cannot be funded by the general taxpayers. It needs to be funded by taxes on corporations based on the amount of automation they have implemented and the number of jobs that it removes from the workforce.
