@RBReich: —We spend $107,575,000,000 more on police than on public housing.—15 states spend $27,000 more per person in prison than they do per student.How about instead of pouring more funds into our brutal systems of policing and mass incarceration, we invest in communities?

@scottsantens: Canada’s PBO report on basic income says one identical to the Ontario pilot would cost $87 billion/yr and cut poverty in half. Cost of poverty is $84 billion/yr. Net cost is thus $45 billion. However it would also grow the economy by $80 billion/yr.Would you spend $45 on $80?
