    Andrew Yang says the thousand dollars would just circulate in the economy but if you buy foreign made goods then it will just go out of the economy. Or if people spend it on junk food and lotto tickets and drugs then it’s also not going back into the economy much.
    And would it not cause inflation in the long run because now that people have more money, sellers are going to jack up prices.

    Andrew Yang is selling smoke to all the socialist idiots out there. This is a sign that the country is going to hell. The entitlement millennials have is unreal, free money for nothing hahaha yeah thats gonna work. Expect the national debt to triple before the collapse if not sooner.

    I’m a Bernie supporter all the way, I believe he is exactly what this country needs right now, but Yang is a legitimate guy who believes in his policies and isn’t bought, I can respect that.

    22 trillion dollars in debt and a trillion dollar deficit.

    UBI would cost more than 3 trillion dollars a year; current US spending is 3.8 trillion dollars, meaning UBI would double our spending.

    And at the same time, the slogan for this clown’s campaign is “Make America Think Harder Again.”

    Yang is a meme, and most of the country knows this.

    Yang’s UBI is a Trojan Horse that hurts the poor and vulnerable the most. It is funded by a regressive VAT tax , is used to destroy the social safety net, explodes inflation, and is distributed in a Regressive fashion.

    The rich that don’t need $1000 get it while someone receiving government assistance of any kind (including Social Security, disability, Food Stamps, Unemployment, Medicaid) receives less than $1000 or none at all. All in a system that is already (flushes money upwards to the Capitalist owners and takes wealth from everyone else). The VAT tax which funds this explodes the prices of goods and services which hurts the poorest the most.

    Yang doesn’t even support the Living Wage minimum wage, Medicare4All, Tuition-free college, cancelling student debt, or medical debt, increasing in Wealth Tax, Estate Tax, Corporate Tax, highest income taxes, capital gains tax, or wallstreet transaction tax.

    Yang’s UBI is a scam.

    Bernie wants housing, healthcare, a job with a living wage, and education to be Human Rights.

    why are the so concerned about giving people money vs. climate change?
    MLK wasn’t for it. It’s a misnomer. MLK wanted money for poverty stricken not everybody.
    Amazon doesn’t play $0 in taxes. It’s a blatant lie.

    If andrew actually becomes president and does a power point we should make it where a english teacher is there staring at him grading his powerpoint speech.

    when he says “amazon paid 0 in taxes”, does he mean the company as an entity? because surely all of its employees and bezos paid taxes right? how does this company tax work exactly?
