Boston Considers Giving Away Free Money to Get Votes

Boston might give away “free” money to get votes. They didn’t put it that way. Instead, they said, Boston might give cash [communist universal basic income] for those who meet the definition of “just surviving.”

One councilor said: “We know that poverty is a policy failure, as we have seen so many times, that requires a policy solution.”

Dem policies are doomed from the start, but the solution will buy votes, and the Hell with you if you earn your living.

City councilors held a hearing Monday to discuss piloting a guaranteed basic income program with officials from Mayor Michelle Wu’s Cabinet.

“This is something that is not only very near and dear to my heart, but I think incredibly important if we’re going to create a city where all of our children and all of our families can thrive, particularly creating a pathway up from poverty for our most vulnerable constituents,” said Councilor Kendra Lara, one of the lead sponsors of the hearing.

In evaluating a potential pilot in Boston, Elijah Miller, director of policy at Boston’s Office of Economic Opportunity and Inclusion, said they were looking at other programs already in place.

“What have they done? How have the outcomes fared? Many of the findings are still preliminary,” Miller said. “We are evaluating what kind of scope is feasible. What would the costs look like based on that? What do different levels of income mean for families? What is the difference between receiving $600 a month versus receiving $1,000 a month? What kind of impacts then bleed into the labor market? Are there any impacts on inflation?”

He continued, “Many of these questions we don’t have answers to yet.”

Except that’s not true. The pilot programs around the nation and in other nations are failures.

There is only one true road out of poverty and that is dedicated, hard work. I would say that the council should ask the Bostonians how they felt about giving their hard earned money away but then I realized it was the Bostonians that elected these idiots.

Everything should be free…even work.

IT IS WRITTEN
Gen 3:17 WEB To Adam he said, “Because you have listened to your wife’s voice, and have eaten from the tree….. the ground is cursed for your sake. You will eat from it with much labor all the days of your life.

Gen 3:19 WEB You will eat bread by the sweat of your face until you return to the ground….

It is ordained by our Creator, that man work to provide his basic needs. All that leftists, marxists, and other atheistic communists push is rebellion to the order that our Creator has prescribed. Mat 4:4 WEB But he answered, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of God’s mouth.’”
