Andrew Yang rules out third-party or independent run if he’s not the Democratic nominee

Westlake Legal Group VmHZcoi38GDyarUbSdRA2fv059_Oik5rfswtAl8QLsg Andrew Yang rules out third-party or independent run if he’s not the Democratic nominee r/politics

“Hate” is not the word I’d use. I don’t trust him. He’s a businessman, he has no political experience, and it’s a struggle to find examples of him living his current, touted philosophy.

In a world where political deception is the norm, he presents a risk. This is of further concern when acknowledging that his message appeals to alt right in a weird way. I’m immediately skeptical of anyone who appeals to the alt-right because there are basically no issues for which I agree with them.

Lastly, I’m wary of a UBI. I believe we’re right to discuss it, and I’d love to see it studied rigorously before we apply such a thing. A UBI that replaces existing social safety nets is cause for concern, as it shifts the power of UBI in a regressive direction for many poor people who will see less of a benefit (relative to current safety nets) than the middle class who need it less. In such a scenario, I’d rather see a scaled basic income dependent on existing income.

Of course, it would be right to criticize a plan like mine on the merit that universality is much cheaper to implement since there’s no means testing, which is historically problematic. However, it feels like wasteful overkill to piss money on millions of people who genuinely don’t need it rather than seeing it go to infrastructure, the poor, healthcare, etc. All while deleting existing social safety nets, and you’ve got what I would call a dubious plan.

Not to say he’s wrong, evil, or has ulterior motives. Just that I don’t trust him as much as I would want to trust a candidate. So I’ll stick with Bernie who I could set a watch to as far as consistency and predictability goes. I trust him, and it’s not hard to. I’ll stick with Warren, whose actions in the senate have created a predictable trajectory, even if it’s shorter than Bernie’s.

The “What happened in your state last week?” Megathread, Week 42

Welcome to the ‘What happened in your state last week’ thread, where you can post any local political news stories that you find important in the comments. This is a weekly thread posted every Monday, in order to facilitate more discussion on local issues on r/politics. Since this is intended to be a thread about local politics, top-level comments that are exclusively about national issues will not be allowed. When commenting, please include the state you’re living in, and don’t forget to link sources. Also, please actually describe what happened. “I live in X, you know what happened” isn’t helpful to users and will be removed.

If someone from your state made a news round-up that you think is insufficient, feel free to comment to that round-up with further news stories. Enjoy discussion, and review our civility guidelines before engaging with others.
