About "UBI Better Outcomes (PRO)"
Here’s a profound thought: People are poor because they don’t have enough money. The best way to solve that is to just give them some money.
Given that reducing poverty is an established goal of the US federal government, and that the resolution does not call on us to change this goal, the only value we need consider is whether the Universal Basic Income is the best way to achieve that goal. Voting Negative will not eliminate existing federal programs like food stamps, Medicaid, HUD housing subsidies, etc. It will only leave us with multiple inefficient programs with various bad incentives for poor behavior. Voting Affirmative will replace an inefficient system with an ethically better one.
