Well the numbers are in, because of the extra 600.00 a week stimulus money, even though GDP shrank nearly 33%, real income increased 7.3%. The economy was kept from going into a steep depression because workers still had purchasing power. This of course has come to an end because of the breakdown in talks about continued stimulus relief. This shows directly paying people can keep the economy from collapsing during an emergency like the pandemic. It is now thought that real income will fall, and we will be faced with millions unable to pay their rents, mortgages, put food on the table, or pay for medical expenses. UBI should be made available at least as long as the pandemic is destroying the economy.

We are nearly into September and we still do not have a resolution to the next phase of stimulus relief. It is caught up in the political fighting over funding our first responders, making sure our elections run smoothly, are secure, and funding for a basic service that we all rely on the Post Office. Local and state governments have been stretched to the limit, because of expenses related to covid-19. Gone are all of those rainy day funds in both Republican and Democrat, Red and Blue states. This makes of course those waiting for their stimulus money to pay for food and shelter, down to spending the last of their savings just to stay afloat. This should show everyone the need for UBI, it would provide a floor of support during this time of economic uncertainty. It would also provide consumers with buying power needed to keep our consumer based economy from going into Depression mode. Like Social Security and Medicare it should be self funding by taxes shared by all of us, otherwise we will have more of this boom, bust cycle associated with unfettered capitalism.

Welcome to the "great" America we were promised. Don't like it? Then say so on November 3. Your words here won't make any difference, but your ballot will.

I vote every election and have since I was first old enough to vote. Funny thing about votes they should all be counted, each should have equal weight, none of this electing electors to decide who is president, then it truly would be the will of the people, reducing the chance of stealing an election. The popular vote is the only democratic method to choose a leader.

P.S. Words are important, if you say or do nothing that means you by your silence are condoning the current status quo.
