Kind of like Social Security retirement FOR LIFE irrespective of age. The Swiss were talking $2,560, to each adult and $640 for children under 18 PER MONTH! That is more than what most people get in Social Security.
Of course the question becomes how will you FINANCE such a guaranteed income plan?
Of course TAXES will have to be raised and other entitlement program, possibly Social Security, would have to be trimmed back.
The Swiss, a savvy bunch, rejected it because they understood the consequences.
That might not be the case in the U.S. IF it ever, by some miracle, makes it to a vote for referendum. But to be fair there will be a large percentage, possibly 50%, who would vote it down because of the tax implication and Federal Government involvement. Food for thought though.
