American voters are almost a year from electing their next president and race to elect a democratic nominee is taking different twists and turns.

At the 3rd Democratic Debate at Houston, Andree Yang has some interesting offer to the American public, called Freedom Dividend Giveaway. You can learn more about Andrew Yang here
Andrew Yang’s famous Universal Basic Income (UBI) a form of basic income that he is proposing for the United States is a set of guaranteed payments of $1,000 per month, or $12,000 per year, to all U.S. citizens over the age of 18.
UBI guarantees that everyone in America gets $1,000/month every month from the U.S. government, no questions asked with the assumption that Andrew Yang will be the next president of the United States Of America.
It was not clear who is included or excluded in the term “everyone” which may be referring to Citizens who can vote, include or exclude foreign workers. I guess this policy yet to be defined with more specifics. You can read more about UBI here.
Apart from UBI, Andrew Yang also released a surprising offer during his last debate which is called Freedom Dividend Giveaway. This is something that the American public has never seen before at least from the perspective of politics.
How Freedom Dividend will be funded?
Andrew proposes funding the Freedom Dividend by consolidating some welfare programs and implementing a Value Added Tax of 10 percent. Current welfare and social program beneficiaries would be given a choice between their current benefits or $1,000 cash unconditionally – most would prefer cash with no restriction.
