Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) says Andrew Yang-backed universal basic income among ‘options to consider’ to ensure American financial well-being.
“We absolutely must raise wages and strengthen the social safety net so that every American has basic financial security. Universal basic income and universal living wages are options to consider.” Elizabeth Warren told The Washington Post.

Warren expressed her willingness to consider a UBI, which quite literally amounts to the government handing individuals and families a “basic” income per month regardless of employment or income status, in a Washington Post survey that asked, “Should the federal government pay a universal basic income to every American adult?”
Three candidates were listed as supporting the measure – Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), Marianne Williamson (D), and Yang. Notably, two candidates were listed as “open to it” – Julián Castro (D) and Warren.
“We absolutely must raise wages and strengthen the social safety net so that every American has basic financial security. Universal basic income and universal living wages are options to consider,” Warren told the Post, noting her push for a $15 minimum wage. More
She’d “consider” anything if she thought it would give her a bump in the polls.

Well, sure Elizabeth Warren would consider it. We know she will say anything to get herself elected. Medicare for all including illegals, open borders, free college, college debt forgiveness, reparations, and Universal Basic Income.

If you rob Peter to pay Paul, you can always count on Paul’s vote. If she gets to implement her idiotic economic plans we are all going to need some kind of basic income from the government because we won’t have any jobs left.
“I can’t get people to vote for me. Let’s offer to pay them.” @SenWarren knows she has lost her momentum and is desperate.
