I’m having a heck of a time getting Google translate to work on news coming out of Chile about emergency basic income there. Can someone please let me know the details of what’s going on? I see talk of an amount that’s 100% of the poverty line to 100% of registered households…

Ending cancer is a great goal to work towards, but that’s going to take some decades. Another big goal that is within our power is ending poverty, and we can do that immediately with the stroke of a pen.
Let’s invest in everyone with universal basic income.#PresidentialAddress

“I worried that my son and I would go hungry. The child tax credit is a financial lifeline.”
The expanded child tax credit means parents will start receiving MONTHLY checks on July 1.
Let’s make that permanent to slash child poverty for good.https://t.co/80rGNkwGYe

Just signed this petition to Congress to make the monthly checks from the child tax credit permanent. Will you join me in signing and sharing this petition?
Cutting child poverty in half will save us over $ 500 billion a year.
It’s a good and moral deal.https://t.co/3MiIHWCBZY
