People working at jobs they hate, to prevent themselves from being homeless, is not freedom. That’s why I’m in favor of a generous Universal Basic Income that would give everyone the freedom to do what’s truly meaningful to them.

I just emailed my MP and asked them to support Bill #C273, Canada’s first ever #BasicIncome bill. This bill would force our government to create a national strategy for a Guaranteed Basic Income. Will you join me?https://t.co/eBIyYaPBdJ@ubi_works #ubiworks

It seems there is a new policy being embraced by today’s GOP: if you speak the truth about the 2020 election or January 6, you’ll suffer the consequences.
Allowing them to control the House would be a disaster. It’s bigger than one election. It’s about protecting our democracy.

The power to refuse to work until your conditions are met is called bargaining power. The unemployment insurance boost is providing that power temporarily. Unconditional basic income would provide that power permanently, and unlike UI, would be kept in addition to wages vs. lost. https://t.co/LwGdmcVPB1

Now is the time to think big, not small — that means restoring the corporate tax rate to 35%, cracking down on offshore tax shelters, and closing corporate tax loopholes. This would generate at least $ 2.3 TRILLION to invest in the long-neglected needs of the working class.
