Canada: Ontario’s New Government to Abandon Socialist ‘Basic Income’ Experiment

August 2, 2018 Daily Wire 2

‘Universal basic income’ is a socialist scheme that takes money from taxpayers and redistributes it to mostly non-taxpayers. Stockton, a city in California, will spend $900,000 over 18 months to subsidize 100 residents with $500 monthly. [We expect the program to become permanent in California, however, because legislators there do not care if a program is too expensive or unsustainable so long as it gets them elected.]
