The COVID-19 pandemic has revealed the deeply flawed nature of our current economy, where the loss of a single paycheck can have a devastating and near-irreversible impact upon a family’s financial security. In the face of rising unemployment rates and a higher risk of incurring medical debt, Americans need a Universal Basic Income system now more than ever. Providing every citizen (and some non-citizens) with financial support will ensure that the American people have the means to overcome this pandemic and challenges to come.
- Support the Emergency Money for the People Act Americans with monthly payments of $2,000 in order to overcome the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
- Establish a Universal Basic Income (UBI) to reinvigorate the economy and financially empower citizens, protecting against poverty, debt and homelessness.
