Congress *must* include UBI in the next COVID-19 bill

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,500!

COVID-19 has made it obvious that late-stage capitalism is failing as a system... in every imaginable way.

The U.S. Congress should be addressing this, but the coronavirus relief package being proposed now includes *no* direct monthly payments to the people.  

Congress needs to get their priorities straight, and put people first, instead of banks and corporations. 

The $1200 stimulus checks promised in the first package have still not even reached tens of millions of Americans, because the tax system in this country is so poorly designed and implemented.

We're forced to rely on tools like GoFundMe and Seeds to find the resourcing we require for basic survival, which is ludicrous when we are also forced to pay taxes to a government that is grossly mishandling them.

We demand that Congress include monthly payments of $2000 to every American for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic in the coronavirus relief package currently being discussed, to be disbursed in a timely manner.  We can afford to do so.  Canada and other more evolved countries have done this for their citizens already. 

It's devastating that the US doesn't value its people enough to do the same.  Congress members must act now, or risk being voted out in November.
