It’s wrong to tell someone without boots that if they pull themselves up by their bootstraps, they can go get a job so they can buy some boots. UBI is money that enables ALL work. It’s bootstraps for all. It’s economic JUSTICE. It’s long overdue. #MLKDaypic.twitter.com/iUgEQTo30E

There is no going back for @WhoopiGoldberg. She is full on #YangGang now and using her celebrity to push the idea of universal basic income at the events she attends. Here’s her with @RuPaul at #DragCon Yanging the audience and reminding them all to vote.pic.twitter.com/Wf99ei2mk6

"What I have done I have done because it has been play. If it had been work I shouldn't have done it… The work that is really a man's own work is play and not work at all… The product of slavery, intellectual or physical, can never be great."—Mark Twainhttps://t.co/IZtsudMXoy pic.twitter.com/ySbnZNwMjt

Pretty much every Republican ever: "If you vote for me, I will increase your income by reducing your taxes."
Media: "Sound legit."
Yang: "Here's $1000/mo. Do anything you want with it. I'd rather change lives for the better than spend it on advertising."
Media: "Sounds fishy." https://t.co/7UIIy5wiGK

It never ceases to amaze me to watch someone like Bernie claim that unconditional economic security somehow diminishes our ability and desire to work and that we need to continue withholding money from people to coerce them into selling their labor.
