BREAKING NEWS – Salem, Oregon – The state of Oregon is weighing a bill to give homeless and low-income people $1,000 a month in universal basic income.
Oregon’s bill is the latest in blue states looking to give handouts to people in universal basic income programs. According to Bill Track 50, the legislation would “provide 12 monthly payments of $1,000 to individuals who are experiencing homelessness.
“However, there will be some parameters,” stated Governor Tina Kotek. “The homeless people will get $1000 per month, but it will be immediately revoked if any of them spends more than $500.00 of the income on marijuana and hard liquor.”
