There’s still some stragglers who are adamantly voting for Andrew Yang even though he dropped out of the Democratic primary.
I’m here to tell you: Just let him go.
I like Andrew Yang. Quite a bit. But he just isn’t ready to be president. His major line was for UBI, which he called a Freedom Dividend.
I’m for UBI and have said as much for several years.
But Yang didn’t answer all the policy questions people have. Would the Freedom Dividend stack with other benefits or not? What would Yang do with SSI and SSDI? Did he even have a disability policy?
These are granular issues that people need to know.
UBI could be great, but it doesn’t solve everything.
In the end, Yang was a one pony show. It’s time to let him go.
