Several of you sent me this lovely little bit of governmental stupidity:
More than 140 people experiencing homelessness in Denver will each be provided up to $1,000 in cash a month for up to one year as part of a basic income program designed to help “lift individuals out of homelessness,” the city announced last week.
The $2 million contract with the Denver Basic Income Project was approved by the City Council and will provide direct cash assistance to more than 140 women, transgender and gender non-conforming individuals, and families in shelters.
Civic altruism and wokism, all subsidized by taxpayer dollars. And I hate to break it to these Colorado morons, but “up to” a grand is going to lift precisely nobody out of poverty. It will, however, encourage more people in similar circumstances to come to Denver…
Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of socialists.
