    Not sure why; administrative costs would go down by more than that.

    well two things would change right off the bat

    the federal/state workforce that over sees it would be cut way back

    and the major recipients would lose more then have of the s they get now

    why assume the second part? Unemployment compensation could be fixed at fourteen dollars an hour; there would no need for a statutory minimum wage on employers.

    at that point that is all gone

    13 grand is the max benefit

    exceptions apply to the disabled and medical fragile

    but that is a small percent of recipients

    there is an upper limit that you can "earn"

    before the 13 grand is cut off as well

    Only for that program; which, is better for persons who truly need welfare; Because, capital must circulate, regardless under Any form of Capitalism.

    Zucky is plotting his run at the Presidency. A universal income is just a subterfuge to buy votes.

    Just sayin'.

    I think Mrs. Clinton would have been president, if she had run on that platform, as well.

    Only for that program

    which program

    under plans like he suggests the whole welfare system is taken down

    food stamps-housing- unemployment - tanf - gone

    you get 13 grand as a base to live off of

    exception being for a very limited number of truly needy people

    Why that much emphasis on equality over need?

    it is not equality at all

    it is the basic income folks can operate on

    if they want to advance themselves

    then take on a job

    the cutoff i have seen before the 13 grand drops off

    is around 35 grand a year
