@RoKhanna: Child care is some of the most important work in the country, but workers are paid above the poverty line in only 10 states.Our economy doesn’t work without child care. It’s time we act like it.

@scottsantens: We have an economic imperative and moral obligation to stop creating poverty through our laws that impose poverty. We have enough basics for everyone. We just don’t allow people to have what they need unless…The “unless” part is morally reprehensible.

@BlairWalsingham: Thanks to all of your support we finished the 1st ever #UBI pilot in East TN. The beneifts from recieving the grant trickled up into the local economy improving not only the recipients lives but everyone around them. Together we can end extreme poverty in #Appalachia #TeamUBI

@PramilaJayapal: Remember: Poverty is a CHOICE. And it’s time for us to choose differently. Bold, progressive policies change lives.

@scottsantens: Let’s make the monthly child benefit permanent. Then let’s extend that benefit to all adults of all ages, and in doing so, let’s abolish poverty once and for all with UBI.

@OurRevolution: “Having a person like me in office will change lives. We’ll be able to put resources behind all of the bold, visionary ideas that will reduce poverty, increase access to affordable housing, & close the racial wealth gap in Buffalo.”

@RBReich: Great news: We’ve had a 45% drop in poverty. Not great news: The 3 programs that cut poverty most — stimulus checks, increased food stamps, and expanded unemployment insurance — have ended or will soon revert to their pre-pandemic size. Lesson: Poverty is a political choice.

@scottsantens: We have got to stop thinking that doing nothing is free. Also, doing what sounds expensive is actually cheap if the alternative is a much larger cost. Just as not ending poverty is more expensive than preventing poverty with UBI, our response to Covid should have been bigger.
