Andrew Yang’s Plan To Give Everyone $1K Per Month


FOLKS, MY NEXT GUEST THIS
EVENING IS ONE OF THE DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES YOU WILL
BE SEEING IN THE DEBATE ON THURSDAY. PLEASE WELCOME, ANDREW YANG! ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
( BAND PLAYING ) ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
( BAND PLAYING )>>Stephen: YOU’VE GOT SOME
PEOPLE HERE TONIGHT WHO ARE EXCITED THAT YOU’RE HERE,
MR. YANG. WHAT DO YOU CALL YOUR FOLLOWERS?>>THE YANG-YANGS ARE OUT HERE
IN FULL FORCE. THANK YOU ALL.>>Stephen: YANG-YANGS. YES.>>Stephen: PART OF YOUR JOB
IS TO MEET THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. PART OF THE JOB IS FOR AMERICANS
TO MEET YOU. WHO IS ANDREW YANG?>>I’M AN INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
AND PROBLEM SOLVER AND I’M RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT TO SOLVE
THE PROBLEMS THAT GOT DONALD TRUMP INTO THE WHITE HOUSE IN
2016. WE STARTED WITH MILLIONS OF
MANUFACTURING JOBS IN MICHIGAN, OHIO, WISCONSIN, PENNSYLVANIA,
AND WE’RE GOING TO DO THE SAME THING TO MILLIONS OF RETAILER
JOBS, CALL CENTER JOBS, FAST FOOD JOBS AND TRUCK DRIVING
JOBS. SO I’M RUNNING TO HELP ADVANCE
MEANINGFUL SOLUTIONS INCLUDING $1,000 A MONTH FOR EVERY
AMERICAN ADULT STARTING AGE 18. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
>>Stephen: ENTREPRENEUR, WHAT’S YOUR TRAINING?>>WELL, I WENT TO LAW SCHOOL
AND SPENT FIVE UNHAPPY MONTHS AS A LAWYER.>>Stephen: AND THEN YOU WERE
OUT?>>YEAH, MY PARENTS TOLD PEOPLE
I WAS A LAWYER FOR A COUPLE OF YEARS AFTERWARDS. THEN I STARTED A BUSINESS THAT
DIDN’T WORK OUT, I WORKED FOR A TECHNOLOGY COMPANY, AND WORKED
FOR A COMPANY THAT BECAME THE ONE OF THE BIGGEST IN THE UNITED
STATES.>>Stephen: BASIC UNIVERSAL
INCOME, THE FREEDOM DIVIDEND. HOW DOES THAT WORK?>>THE FREEDOM DIVIDENDS. IF YOU CAN IMAGINE A COUNTRY
WHERE EVERYONE GETS $1,000 A MONTH AS A RIGHT OF CITIZENSHIP,
IT WOULD MAKE FAMILIES STRONGER, CREATE JOBS, IMPROVEMENTLE
HEALTH, DECREASE STRESS LEVELS AND IMPROVE RELATIONSHIPS. WE CAN MAKE THIS HAPPEN. THOMAS PAYNE WAS THIS AT THE
FOUNDING OF THE COUNTRY.>>Stephen: THOMAS PAYNE SAID
GIVE EVERYBODY $1,000?>>YEAH, THE CITIZENS DIVIDEND. MARTIN LUTHER KING WAS FIGHTING
FOR THIS AND CALLED IT A GUARANTEED MINIMUM INCOME. THAT’S WHAT HE WAS FIGHTING FOR
WHEN KILLED IN 1968.>>Stephen: WHERE DOES THE
MONEY COME FROM?>>WHO ARE THE BIG WINNERS IN
THIS ECONOMY? AMAZON, A TRILLION-DOLLAR FECK
COMPANY THAT PAID ZERO IN TAXES LAST YEAR. THAT’S REGULAR FOR THEM. IF YOU PUT A MECHANISM IN PLACE
WHERE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE GET A TINY SLICE OF EVERY AMAZON SALE,
GOOGLE SEARCH, UBER MILE, THEN WE CAN PAY FOR A $1,000 DIVIDEND
FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE PARTICULARLY BECAUSE IT WILL
COME THROUGH OUR HANDS AND WE WOULD SPEND IT.>>Stephen: YOU STARTED A
PILOT PROGRAM GIVING $1,000 TO FAMILIES IN IOWA AND
NEW HAMPSHIRE. NO SIGNIFICANCE AT ALL TO THOSE. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
YOU’VE GOT TWO VOTES DEFINITELY. HOW ARE THEY USING IT SO FAR,
THESE PEOPLE?>>THEY’RE USING IT ON EXACTLY
WHAT YOU WOULD EXPECT, ON THEIR DAUGHTERS’ COLLEGE LOANS,
UNEXPECTED CAR REPAIRS, THE PERSON IN IOWA MOVED BACK HOME
TO CARE FOR HIS AILING MOTHER, SO IT’S GOING TO TAKE CARE OF
BILLS AND HER MEDICAL PAYMENTS, AND IT’S GOING SO WELL THAT I
ACTUALLY HAVE AN ANNOUNCEMENT TONIGHT, I’M GOING TO BE GIVING
$1,000 A MONTH TO ANOTHER AMERICAN FAMILY, AND ALL YOU
HAVE TO DO IS RETWEET THE TWEET THAT’S GOING TO GO OUT
CONCURRENT WITH THIS SHOW.>>Stephen: RIGHT NOW? RIGHT NOW, AND FOLLOW ME, AND
WE’LL GIVE $1,000 A MONTH TO AN AMERICAN FAMILY ON FOURTH OF
JULY INDEPENDENCE DAY BECAUSE IT’S ALL ABOUT MAKING US FREER. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
>>Stephen: NOW, YOU’RE IN THE DEBATE THIS THURSDAY. WHAT DOES A WIN LOOK LIKE FOR
YOU? WHAT DO YOU WANT TO GET OUT OF
THIS? WHAT DO YOU WANT THE PEOPLE TO
SEE?>>WELL, MOST AMERICANS ARE JUST
TUNING IN TO 2020 RIGHT NOW, AND MOST AMERICANS ARE STILL FINDING
OUT ABOUT ME AND THE OTHER CANDIDATES, AND, SO, A WIN FOR
ME AS AMERICANS TUNE IN, THEY SAY WHO’S THE ASIAN MAN STANDING
NEXT TO JOE BIDEN AND THEY LOOK ME UP AND SEE AND SAYS, WOW,
THIS MAKES SENSE, WE CAN BUILD A TRICKLE-UP ECONOMY FROM OUR
FAMILIES AND COMMUNITIES UP, AND WE REALLY DON’T HAVE A CHOICE
BECAUSE ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AND SELF-DRIVING CARS ARE AROUND
THE CORNER, IF WE DON’T MAKE BIG MOVES NOW, THIS COUNTRY WILL GO
THROUGH ROUGHER TIMES THAN IT IS NOW.>>Stephen: IS ARTIFICIAL
INTELLIGENCE, IS THERE ANY CHANCE THEY’D DO TALK SHOWS,
TOO? AM I A TALK SHOW HOST IN DANGER
OF LOSING THEIR JOBS FROM ALL OF THAT?>>YOU WON’T BELIEVE THIS, BUT
THEY ACTUALLY HAVE A VIRTUAL TALK SHOW HOST, PRIMARILY
READING THE NEWS, NOT COMEDY.>>Stephen: OKAY. ( LAUGHTER )
THAT’S WORRISOME. OKAY. I WANT TO HIT YOU UP WITH SOME
OF THE — SOME OF THE POLICIES THAT MIGHT COME WITH THE DEBATE,
SOME OF YOUR POLICIES. THIS IS A LIGHTNING ROUND. GO THROUGH THIS ABS QUICKLY AS
POSSIBLE, PLEASE, MR. YANG. YOU’RE IN FAVOR OF EMPOWERING
M.M.A. FIGHTERS.>>YES.>>Stephen: WHAT DOES THAT
MEAN? THAT WAS MORE THAIN INTENDED.>>MIXED MARTIAL ARTISTS GET
PAID ABOUT TEN% OF SPORTS REVENUES WHEREAS THE MAJOR
SPORTS ARE PAID 50%. THEY’RE GETTING EXPLOIDED. I’M PASSIONATE ABOUT TRYING TO
BALANCE THE SCALES FOR FIGHTERS.>>Stephen: FREE MARRIAGE
COUNSELING?>>YEAH, THE DATA SHOWS THAT IF
YOU HAVE COUPLES STAY TOGETHER, THEN THE OUTCOMES ARE MORE
POSITIVE FOR CHILDREN. SO I MAKES SENSE TO HELP PEOPLE
STAY TOGETHER.>>Stephen: YOU’RE IN FAVOR OF
A WHITE HOUSE PSYCHOLOGIST?>>YES. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
YEAH, AND I THOUGHT IT WAS A GOOD YT EVEN BEFORE OUR CURRENT
PRESIDENT.>>Stephen: YOU’RE IN FAVOR OF
ABOLISHING THE PENNY.>>YEAH. SO WE SPEND MORE THAN A PENNY ON
EACH PENNY.>>Stephen: YOU REALIZE YOU
JUST LOST ILLINOIS.>>WE CAN FIND ANOTHER THING.>>Stephen: THAT’S ALL I’VE
GOT.>>IT’S ALSO BAD FOR THE
ENVIRONMENT. YOU HAVE TO GET THE COPPER OUT. THE PENNIES DON’T MAKE SENSE. WHO WANTS TO BE MI BEHIND THE
PERSON IN LINE, AM I RIGHT? ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
>>Stephen: MM-HMM. YOU ALSO CAME OUT AGAINST
CIRCUMCISION. AGAIN, ASKING FOR A FRIEND —
( LAUGHTER ) — WHAT IF ONE’S ALREADY HAD
ONE, CAN THEY HAVE AN EXTRA THOUSAND DOLLARS JUST TO
COMPENSATE. YOU KNOW, JUST A LITTLE TIP? ( LAUGHTER )
>>YOU KNOW, I THINK PARENTS SHOULD DO WHAT THEY WANT, JUST
EDUCATE THEMSELVES. AS YOU SAW IN THE EARLIER
SEGMENT, IT WAS LIKE A COMMENT ON TWITTER, BUT I THINK PARENTS
NEED TO GET FULL INFORMATION AND DO WHAT’S BEST FOR THEIR KIDS.>>Stephen: YOU’RE TALKING
LIKE COMMENTS ON TWITTER AREN’T U.S. POLICY AT THIS POINT.>>THIS IS TRUE.>>Stephen: MR. YANG, THANKS
FOR BEING HERE. GOOD LUCK ON THURSDAY NIGHT. WE’LL BE WATCHING. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
>>STEPHEN: YOU CAN SEE HIM AGAIN IN THURSDAY’S DEBATE. ANDREW YANG, EVERYBODY! WE’LL BE RIGHT BACK WITH A
PERFORMANCE BY JENNY LEWIS. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

    Just a friendly reminder that Yang's UBI isn't all what it's seems to be. Still doesn't fix the issue of income inequality. People who are on welfare and other government funded financial aid will be cut off if they choose to apply for UBI. Which means people who need the additional support will be in the same spot as they are before. All that UBI will go towards keeping their head above water unlike like what Yang proposes saying that they can use it to start a business and what not.

    As a Canadian, I know I'm not an American citizen, but this guy Andrew Yang is presidential material. Donald Trump made America a laughing stock, and he made very bad decisions for your country

    Andrew Yang for 2020! 💯

    So is the dividend an additive or is it a base income that is replaced once one has a job? Also why are we playing Green Hill after an Interview with Yang, I miss something? Lol

    Shows how little this guy knows about history. The Dr king reference is incorrect, Dr king believed in helping the poor not giving an arbitrary amount of money to every citizen. There is no free money, that will just be paid in increased taxes on the working class. Everyone likes to blame automation and big business but can't provide real solutions. If you want to help the middle class and the economy at the same time push for initiatives that train people in fields like medicine, advanced manufacturing and stem careers. We need more engineers and less liberal arts degrees, and more manufacturing programmers and machine operators than degreed students anyways. As usual, another clueless politician..

    My question is how would the 1k per month NOT cause major inflation? Because there's a difference between everyone working and getting 1k a month, and then there's getting 1k for no reason a month. When you work, the money you obtain is not added, rather transferred. Now I do know that his proposal is based on the big companies allegedly paying 0$ and as such the taxes that they would be paying would then go to the people, but wouldn't that be more adding then transferring? Plus there are also many adults in the US, and if it isn't already, wouldn't it at some point go beyond the amount they would pay to taxes?

    Bernie wants a fed job guarantee. Fed job guarantee is what China was doing back in the 50-80s. In China it was called the iron rice bowl. And resulted in uncompetitive and bureaucratically laden inefficient economy. Fed job guarantee failed And was largely abandoned with the introduction of state capitalism in the 80s. Fed job guarantee is why my family came to the states from China in the first place. To escape its Failure as an experiment. Bernies heart is in the right place but my god he has old and backwards ideas. I don’t think Bernie really understands the solution to the problem that got Donald trump elected

    I have voted in every election, never voted for Trump because I read and I understood that he was dishonest, his daughter said "It is better to be perceived to be right than actually be right" that should have told the story right there. I am voting for Andrew Yang he is the best and will help rebuild the middle class. He is a Real American for All Americans.

    Andrew Yang definitely is an entrepreneur, the idea of investing back into American citizens are not the thoughts of corrupt, greedy men.

    He still doesn't know how he will fund this money… right now he is using his campaign money for the 120K. He hasn't said anything on why he is different than Trump.. Listen carefully…. Many people start non-profits… it just means all of his experience is using OTHER people's money…. I hear the same thing over and over again…. Democrats love to use OTHER PEOPLE'S MONEY and when that runs out, they don't know how to generate their own income…. Just like Obama…..OTHER PEOPLE'S MONEY.

    What he says about the benefits of giving 1k is actually true. In Poland all the families with two kids (think) get 500 dollars in some span of time. And even in my family that lives there say that it has had a positive impact. Sadly I have to wait still four years to vote but I do support this guy. Can’t wait to tell my conservative aut’s boyfriend about this.

    If everyone had 1k more, that means that prices would go up as well. This is basic economics. So whit that you won't fix anything. The ratio between rich and poor would stay the same and are rich also the part of everyone or does everyone include only lazy and poor people? Plus where will you get the money? Sure you can give higher taxes, but people don't like taxes and the rich people will stop paying them! So, in the end, all you would do, by giving 1k to everyone, is destroy the US economy!

    Ha. of course free things, taxing the rich heavily and socialism sounds good.
    Untill everyone is equally poor and the government gets corrupt, bloated and collapse eventually. Don't believe me? I have one word

    Horrible idea, it's like farmer's aid of Donald Trump.
    We're a CAPITALIST country, not SOCIALIST country.

    But no matter, the hired guns of big corporation will get this guy soon, if he were trying do something about the big companies. He is a fool and gonna kill soon.

    What work are they going to do for it ? Free money is a drug. This nation was built on work. Trying. Endeavor. What are they going to be doing for this money ? He is buying votes. None of this matters anyway. He will not be President.
