In a tweet this morning AOC actually called for a universal basic income in response to the coronavirus:
This is not the time for half measures. We need to take dramatic action now to stave off the worst public health & economic affects. That includes making moves on paid leave, debt relief, waiving work req’s, guaranteeing healthcare, UBI, detention relief(pretrial, elderly, imm)
That’s quite a socialist laundry list there. The big one though is UBI. In case you aren’t familiar with it because you’re not a socialist, UBI stands for “universal basic income”.
And notice she also wants the government to “guarantee healthcare”, meaning Medicare for All.
Ay yay yay! Where does she think all of this money is going to come from to pay for people’s mortgages and student loans, universal basic income, guaranteed health care, paid leave, and all the other garbage she’s calling for? It’s insanity on steroids.
