Krystal Ball on MSNBC calls for minimum income checks for all Americans to ‘end poverty’

On Tuesday’s edition of MSNBC’s “The Cycle,” co-host Krystal Ball suggested that the United States implement a minimum guaranteed income for every “non-incarcerated adult citizen.”

This massive entitlement program would “eliminate poverty” completely, Ball claimed.

The free government money would not only solve poverty, but it would not create deincentives to work, she claimed.

“The basic concept is simple,” she said. “Every non-incarcerated adult citizen gets a monthly check from the government. Other safety net programs are jettisoned to pay for the mincome, and poverty is eliminated.”

“We tend to think of poverty, homelessness, despair as inevitable but mincome makes you realize — in a country as rich as ours — we allow those outcomes as a choice,” Ball concluded. “We could decide to eliminate poverty and it wouldn’t even take a Christmas miracle to do it.”

Ball is famous for her Congress run which was derailed by racy photos from her past – more HERE
