Democratic Presidential Candidate Andrew Yang says giving everyone $1K a month will let people focus on climate change.
During Thursday's Democratic Debate the candidates were asked what their first priority would be as president. Yang responded that giving his “Freedom Dividend” – a universal income of $1,000 a month would take the lead.
“I would pass a $1,000 Freedom Dividend for every American adult starting at age 18. Which would speed us up on climate change, because if you get the boot off of people’s throats they’ll focus on climate change much more clearly,” Yang said.
