Mayor Rahm tries to save his ass with promises of UBI!


[sign in to see URL]

"I think the mayor sees this as a chance to lead the way as cities try to grapple with poverty and income inequality at a time the federal government is not addressing those things. This would be a legacy issue [for Emanuel]."

- Chicago’s North Side Ald. Ameya Pawar


Legacy, as he means to save his ass with promises he will never deliver upon.

Rahm is not running again.

He has too many enemies to make it worthwhile.

This UBI thing is noted in the article as maybe a "legacy play." Something that his PR people can urge writers to write about as "one of Rahms idealistic efforts to raise up our [sign in to see URL] blah..."

The article has video, and a Dem calls it welfare, then says its not, then that its "kinda."

That small of an amount, with no other payouts anywhere being reduced, does simply amount to more welfare.

I'm confident that this is exactly the way most Dem machines around the country will do "UBI experiments."

They'll never deliver, but the rank and file will suck it down, because the notion feels good. "Look at what we are doing for the People!"
