Debate starts at: 6:31. Is universal basic income for pinko commie dipshits? First-time guest Brad joins Kirk Wilcox, Ron and I for the debate about “Universal Basic Income” (UBI). The theory is that as technology progresses and replaces traditional jobs for humans (self-checkout cashiers, automated fast food cooks, kiosks, etc), unemployment would go up and traditional jobs would become obsolete. So some politicians have proposed a basic income level that every citizen would get every month. Beyond your UBI, you’d be able to work, but your income would be taxed at 50%. Good idea? Bad idea? Kirk had an interesting idea: pass UBI but eliminate all other government programs (universal healthcare, etc). Watch the video version here at Madcast Media Network YouTube channel
