I disagree with everyone refusing to get vaccinated, but it’s also true that no one should lose survival income for refusing to get vaccinated, or for protesting. That’s an argument for UBI, not against it. Survival income is a human right. Fear of poverty should not be a weapon.

Wow, I knew it was unequal, but seeing it so clearly like this is just crazy. Those who are unvaccinated and had 2019 incomes under $ 25,000 are missing around 4x as much paid work as those with the same income who are vaccinated, and also 4x the unvaccinated earning over $ 75,000. pic.twitter.com/Gf5iLMLc4C

From the very beginning we should have made it as easy as possible to get vaccinated. That includes removing financial barriers like lack of paid time off, lack of child care, lack of health insurance, etc. People with low incomes have more obstacles.
UBI removes many obstacles. https://t.co/wVuMoYgp6B

Only 62% of the population is fully vaccinated (but not all boosted). Whose fault is that? The unvaccinated and the disinformation spreaders failed, not the scientists, not the government, and certainly not all the people who are vaccinated and take the necessary precautions. https://t.co/WEPTvcC3PL

The least vaccinated group of people in the U.S. are those without health insurance.
