2. Nope. it will scare some independents away tho.

Some guaranteed income to get through the pandemic and a moratorium on evictions is necessary. Getting money into the economy in crucial... explain Democrats want to get more to the people, whereas the GOP wants to get more to the corporations (and stock market) by keeping loans artificially low (free money for investment). In reality it probably needs to be a mix of both?
Universal income will easily be defined by Republicans as lazy Americans taking money from working Americans. American voters are already leery of Universal healthcare and that should have been a no brainer.
