A Guaranteed Basic Income?

Guaranteeing A Basic Income

Hmmm… I know that there are many, many problems with this ‘crazy’ idea. But I like it. I like the sheer audacity of this kind of idea. Obviously, it would cause many conservatives to implode but if you read the entire short article, it might give them pause, too.

As I’ve previously mentioned, it horrifies me that we don’t have a guaranteed social safety net in place for everyone. Or health care for everyone. Oh, and don’t forget education.

“If investments in the banks fail, ‘Oh, it’s a tragedy,’ but if people die of hunger or don’t have food or health, nothing happens. This is our crisis today.” – that crazy Pope Francis telling it like it is.
