More than half of Americans receive more money in various types of government transfer payments (Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps and Social Security) than they pay in federal taxes. The Congressional Budget Office reports that only the top 40% income earners in the US pay more in taxes than they receive in government transfers.

It will then become politically necessary to extract larger and larger amounts of wealth from a minority in order to subsidize the majority.

California: Michael Tubbs, the 26-year old Mayor of Stockton, will provide a universal basic income ($500 per month) to low-income residents. Stockton was the largest city in America to claim bankruptcy during the financial crisis. Critics fear it will create a welfare state. [Stockton already IS a welfare state. We predict that, when the ‘experiment’ is finished, it will be seen as a colossal failure, but those who are well paid to administer the welfare state will claim that the only reason it failed is that $500 was not enough. The result will be another ‘experiment’ at $1,000, and another at $2,000, and so on to eternity.]
