    Ontario Forced To Pull Plug On Universal Basic Income Program

    Ontario is pulling the plug early on a universal basic income pilot project intended to last three years. The program, which was launched in April of 2017, was shockingly found to be far too expensive and simply unsustainable. (Who would have guessed?)

    Universal basic income is "clearly not the answer for Ontario families," explained Children, Community, and Social Services Minister Lisa MacLeod, adding that the program was "not sustainable."

    Though the welfare program was intended to last three years, it will be coming to an end this week, announced MacLeod. She promised the program's exit would be done "ethically" and would provide "more detail at a later date."

    Roughly 4,000 Canadians, regardless of unemployment status, are enrolled in the program. "[A] single person could have received up to about $17,000 a year, minus half of any income he or she earned. A couple could have received up to $24,000 per year. People with disabilities could have received an additional $6,000," reports CBC.



    SURPRISE! Ontario Forced To Pull Plug On Universal Basic Income Program
    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    Still waiting for trans to explain why it's Trump's fault.
    “Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.".Daniel Webster
