On Thursday, April 21, the Austin City Council will consider moving forward with a guaranteed income pilot program that will authorize $1000 monthly to program participants. This program is another example of a liberal agenda that rewards non-productivity and poverty.
The City Council authorized $1.1 million in funding to serve eighty-five people who will receive $1,000 a month. If approved, the program will excuse and encourage more poverty, attracting more nonproductive people to Austin.
Liberals and leftists who do not believe in the American Dream believe government must “help” people. However, this guaranteed income program enslaves people by making them dependent on government handouts.
Personal economic freedom is the foundation of political liberty because economically independent people are a tyrant’s worst nightmare.
