20. Not the only solution, but part of it

The wealthiest have had their wealth go up even during the pandemic. They should definitely be taxed more. Other ideas are a stock transaction tax and corporate tax increase (some corporations pay $0) and reducing defense spending. Now providing a comfortable living via UBI would probably crash the economy. But a more modest amount along with current social safety net provisions like food stamps, Medicare and Social Security is doable.
