54.2 million people are living in poverty while billionaires like Jeff Bezos pocket $152,000 per minute.
Nearly half the U.S. is poor or low-income. In the richest country on Earth, poverty is a policy choice. In Congress, I will fight for:
- Direct cash payments to poor and low-income Americans — a universal basic income of at least $2K per month.
- A jobs guarantee as part of the Green New Deal, so everyone who needs a job can get one.
- Free public college and trade school, so everyone can afford the education they need to prosper.
