  1. As much as I like the idea of basic income for all Americans for basic things like food, shelter, clothing, etc., the average American doesn’t have the ability to handle money in an intelligent way. Our economy is based heavily on people buying “stuff” and giving them extra money they didn’t originally have would ultimately have them finding loopholes to get access to that money. Case in point, I’ve seen personally someone on assistance use their card to purchase food, then take out the $200 cash they have available to them and buy cartons of cigarettes. That cash is supposed to be used for non-food items such as clothing. Our entire culture has to change in order for an idea of basic income to actually work.
