WATCH: Pelosi floats minimum guaranteed income as “worthy of attention”

Appearing on MSNBC, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi floated the possibility of a minimum guaranteed income for people.

Former 2020 candidate Andrew popularized the idea of Universal Basic Income as the hallmark of his campaign. Since the coronavirus pandemic hit, the idea has been gaining traction with unemployment soaring.

Nancy Pelosi:

As we go forward, let’s see what works. What is operational, and what needs other attention? Others have suggested a minimum … guaranteed income for people. Is that worthy of attention now?

Perhaps so because there are many more people than just in small business and hired by small business as important as that is to the vitality of our economy and other people who are not in the public sector meeting our needs in so many ways that may need some assistance as well.

“But again, recognize the realities of it all. What is the execution of it? What is working? And … what are we getting our money’s worth on?

I think we have to look at that, too. How is the money being spent? With all the best intentions in the world, but nonetheless, we want the money to go where it needs.
