Ilhan Omar, a Minnesota Democrat, is proposing a plan to provide monthly stimulus payments up to $1,200 for adults and $600 for children.
The “Sending Unconditional Payments to People Overcoming Resistances to Triumph” plan or SUPPORT, is “designed to build a 21st-century economy that is reflective of Americans’ everyday needs,” according to a press release.
“For too long we have prioritized endless growth while millions are homeless, hungry or without healthcare” Omar said. “The pandemic has laid bare these inequalities. We as a nation have the ability to make sure everyone has their basic needs like food, housing and healthcare met.”
A new Office of Guaranteed Income Programs would be established in the Treasury Department to oversee the payments under the proposal. United States residents 18 and older would receive $1,200 payments while child dependents would receive $600 monthly.
Eligibility is dependent on income. For example, single taxpayers would have to have an Adjusted Gross Income of $75,000 or less. For married couples filing jointly, maximum income would have to be $150,000. These stimulus payments would then gradually be scaled down $5 for every $100 over those income levels.
Getting ready to introduce a major guaranteed income bill tomorrow. What are your thoughts on income guarantees?

Omar’s bill would fund guaranteed income pilots in hundreds of communities, then launch a national program to send $1,200 monthly to people making up to $75,000 a year. https://t.co/thj4p2X0Bc

The program would be established with a $2.5 billion grand fund used to pilot guaranteed income programs across the U.S., according to AL.com. The efforts would be studied from 2023 to 2027 with the national program and payments starting in 2028.
Some Democratic members of Congress have shown support for Omar’s bill, as expressed in public statements.
“It’s crucial that we assess the economy based on how it serves working people, instead of on the profits of the largest corporations,” said Democratic Congresswoman from Illinois Marie Newman. “I am proud to cosponsor the GPI Act & SUPPORT Act to ensure that we are accounting for economic justice in policymaking, and to provide crucial cash assistance to tackle the country’s gross income divide. A strong economy does not just work for the wealthy and well-connected, it should work for everyone. I am thrilled to support legislation designed to do just that.”

The guaranteed income bill should be renamed the guaranteed bankruptcy bill. The Democrats have nothing to worry about, as the RINOS in the House and Senate will support the final destruction of America. Give me, give me, give me, I no longer have to work because the government of the United States (I mean Venezuela) will support me. Oh, the beauty of socialism / communism aka destroy the incentive to work because big brother government will support me the rest of my life. Breadlines and Bernie Sanders here we come!
She’s not talking about universal incomes for Americans which most of us know (and do not want) SHE wants illegal immigrants to have universal incomes..like farmer relief to all but WHITE FARMERS..THEY ARE TRYING TO DO AWAY WITH WHITE COLLAR WORKERS, AND SMALL BUSINESSES..first step to socialism…and if we DON’T WAKE UP..its going to happen..or has it already started..I think so..as MANY ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS GOT STIMULUS MONEY FOR COVID, AND MORE MONEY (3K) HOUSING AND FOODSTAMPS FOR ILLEGALS COMING INTO OUR COUNTRY AS I WRITE THIS..homeless Americans? Nawww
ALL will get it, American and illegal invaders..
Llhan Omar proposes Guaranteed Income up to $1,200.00 Dollars Per Month , $600.00For each Child.. ” ” Sinclair Lewis Said, ” When Fascism comes to America It Will be Wrapped in the Flag and carrying A Cross ” The Catholic Church has provided Some of these illegal immigrants coming across America’s open Borders with (Sanctuary ), definition, ” APlace of Refuge, A Hooly Place “
That is why if i had the power, EVERYONE Of those so-called churches doing this, would LOSE ANY AND ALL CHARITY STATUS and protections they enjoy…
The Marxist democrat party of America which Claims to be against intolerance and Raceism, and discrimination says, in effect discrimination is all right, if the democratt Marxist party of America does it them selves against the White Farmer.
In Responce tp backpacker’ s post, This grand plan of llhan Omar’s …. Proposing ” A Guaranteed Income … ” sounds like a plan that was proposed by ” Cloward-Pivin Strategy , ” to Replace the ” welfare System with ” A Guaranted Annual Income plan . “
What’s the bet though, THEY DO NOT WANT IT TO replace the welfare system, but be used IN CONJUNCTION with it, to where all these welfare leeches, ‘earn’ more a year sitting on their fat ashes, than NORMAL FOLKS DO with a 50 hr work week, at 25$ an hour pay!
The Socialist Democrat Party Dictatorship takeover attempt.
This Democrat Party has become our country’s most DEADLIEST ENEMY!!!
Vote all of these Democrat enemies OUT OF OFFICE EVERYWHERE!!!!!
“Ilhan Omar Proposes Guaranteed Income Up To $1,200 Per Month, $600 For Children.” And she is prepared to marry every relatative in Somalia she can, to bring them over and start a foreign bought and paid for cime family competative with that of the Bidens. The only income guaranteed by the democrats these days is the wave of incoming illegal aliens yearning to eat free.
Marget Thatcher said, ” socialism is fine, Untill. You Run out of Other Peoples Money. “
Is she out of her freaking mind? And who are the idiots who agree with her? America is going down the toilet. At 18 years old, and above, they should be working and not receiving handouts. Additionally, if I had
ever made $75,000 per year in my 80 years I certainly would not have needed government handouts. We
supported 4 children, they worked from the time they could, they helped put themselves through college, I was widowed at 42 and worked three jobs to continue to support my children, and are now very successful. If you cannot afford to support your children, then don’t have them. The woman and her ilk are total idiots.
“designed to build a 21st-century economy that is reflective of Americans’ everyday needs,”
HUH?? If the government pays Democrat people NOT to work, Democrat People won’t work.
Look at what happened when the Democrat Party government payed $600 a week for unemployment.
And Where do these FOOLS think that government gets money from??…… TAXES!!
If FOOLS do not work, they don’t pay taxes.
Where is this monthly stimulus payments up to $1,200 for adults and $600 for children going to come from?
From the rich? Who moved out of the U.S.?
From the Corporations who moved out of the U.S.?
But…. we have a country full of Democrat’s “useful idiots” greedy, stupid, fools.
There’s days i really think Heinlenn’s vision of how earth should be, via the Starship troopers films, where ONLY CITIZENS could vote, and you ONLY EARNED it via joining the military, was spot on.. AT LEAST IN THAT UNIVERSE there was no such thing as welfare leeches!!!
“…Llhan Omar is a Democrat From Minnesota … ” Wouldn’tYou just Know That llhan Omar was a Democrat…..
VOTE Scruffy? You’re kidding me right! That is so 20th century, 21st century voting should be cast from the end of a barrel.
Every time this idiot and the rest of the IDIOT squad open their mouths, they show how stupid and ignorant they are. Sure pay everyone not to work or contribute to society just like them. Look at all of these that propose this stupidity what their charitable contributions are ,, how mucha and to whom. Simple solution : those that propose idiocy should contribute a bare minimum of 50% of your salary. See where these morons stand then. Open your fat mouth then pay. That is an easy way to shut them up. Every one of these socialist(communists) should literally pay or leave this great country. They don’t belong here and don’t appreciate anything about this country. Go to sudan, saudi arabia, china, russia, venezuela or ANY where else and never come back. Then let us know how your doing over there.
Every time i look at those in our Government they don’ look like the old politicians, No, today the democrat Marxist of America don’t attempt to hide their Evil Intent but they hide their identities with Masks and Muslim Garb..
I have read recently on Gopusa that ome of the Muslim Squad, llhan Omar, Proposes ” Guaranteed Annual Income of up to $ 1200.00 Dollars per month , $600.00 for Children.. ” i don ‘t see that which method the ” Squad uses, Sematics, whatever, ” Guaranteed Annual Income is judt another method of paying ” Reparations ” to a Class of people. ” David Horowitz Wrote, ” 10 Reasons ” Reparations Wasn’A Good Idea, And Racists Too. Which Informed why People Should never Concent to pay ( Reprations ,) in any Form for Slavery.
EVEN if we some how manged that, UNTIL AND UNLESS we end the entire bloody ‘welfare/entitlement’ society, AND STOPPED ILLEGAL invaders and welfare leeches voting, it won’t change much… i fear.
Milton Friedman idea now being used to increase government dependency. As proposed originally, it would have replaced all other government handouts giving the individual the flexibility to decide how best to use it with NO penalties for work and gaining job experience. Omar’s plan is just a vote buying with money from my wallet with no real long term benefit to the recipient.
Oh for the days when all it cost you to buy a vote of a social person comfortable with a home made of cardoard or tent material was a pack of cigarrets or a bottle of booze. Just how high can the socialist Democrat vote auction go? Why stop at $1200/mo when the Bidens are raking in millions for themselves, using your taxpayer money to buy themselves into prosperity. In the old days you might not approve of the social Criminals but at least they were our American criminals and knew when to stop and not cross the line. These foreigners are way more greedy and will stop at nothing.
Where as I LONG for the day, EVERY DAMN ENTITLEMENT program is IMMEDIATELY AND irrevocably ended.. EITHER GET YOUR fat butt up and work, or STARVE!
When John F. Kennedy was running For president, his Father, to paraphrase what John F. Kenndy’s Father said to his son, John, ” Son, Don’t But Any More VotesThan you Need. ” The cost of votes, like every thingelse has gone Up llham Omar says that a guaranteed Annual Income to those receiving Welfare Isn’t too much to pay for a Vote.
What the devil does “overcoming resistances to triumph” mean? Sounds like a jihadist slogan to me.
This money is coming out of her pocket, correct?
NEVER her pocket. JUST OURS.. Like always.
“With the national program and payments starting in 2028″…. Why not have it start the week after the bill is signed into law? Why wait seven years?
America needs to take the checkbook away from the Communists.
IMO that should have been done, BACK IN THE MID 80s!!! when we controlled BOTH the house/senate AND the white house.
Richard Nixon had the revelation of Alger Hiss and the pumpkin papers to make his bones on fighting Communism. All Joe has is a party of boney Pumpkin headed people like Ilham Omar with mush for brains, who look like Headless Horsemen Jack-o-Lanterns when they smile but shed light on nothing. They are the representatives of the American House that now represents unamerican activities,,,,it’s called their safe Zone. January 6th was just the Patriotic slum landlord wrecking crew coming to take back their neighborhoods and return them to safe places for ALL Americans where LIVING free is preferred to EATING FREE.
The Criminal element has inhabited The Nation’s Capital , They are commonly called, ” democrat Marxist politicians of America …..
They make the italian and russian mafiosos, look like Choir boys…
” That is What i like about your Comments, ( Inluminatu, You tell it like it is.
What is a child going to do with $600 / mo.? Relieve their parents from supporting them? I can see it now, “don’t tell me your problems son, you get paid, handle it yourselves”. Also, if you give me $1200 / mo. but raise the price on everything (housing, food, gas) for a total $2400 / mo., you’ve screwed me again sister. Keep your $1200. Furthermore, I’ve been promised for my whole working life that I’d receive Social Security retirement at 62 y.o., yet here I am, about to turn 63 y.o. and still working with no retirement in sight. Give back all that stolen money that you have taken out of my salary and I could’ve retired long ago. I’ve had it with your lies uncle sam – cease & desist!
John F. kennedy was once asked , ” When did the Civil Rights Movement go off the Rails? “” The Answer is When propontants went from Justly demanding equal Rights to Unjustly demanding Equal Results ” From ” Charlemagne Institute. ” Even a democrat President recognized tha a ” Guarannnteed Annual Income paid. Tothose receivig Welfare. Wasn’t the right thig todo, Rewarding those who Lived off Workinng class Americans. While John F. kennedy wasn’t directly referring to a ” Guaranteed Annual Income, The Civil Rights Organizations Weresure tobe agreeale to such an Idea.
I think that’s a GREAT IDEA!
Ilhan Omar (HERSELF), or the Democrats (ALONE) can reach into THEIR pockets and pay everyone whatever they want!
What is a STUPID idea, is taking TAX DOLLARS (from the productive in the country) and GIVING it to those who DON’T EARN IT (or, dare I say, DO ANYTHING TO DESERVE IT)!
Look at how Government Handouts have convinced SOME people to stay at home and suck on the Government teet, instead of GETTING A JOB (because Government is PAYING THEM to do NOTHING)!
START with commie loving cretins like Zuckerberg, Besos and soros…. THEN MAYBE We can talk, once theyve all given up their multi-billions.
This money is coming out of her pocket and all the other politicians are going to donate their salary plus throw in their SS slush fund to pay for this, correct? Bwaahaha, next joke.
So much for filling those jobs we cannot fill.
Of all the rocks I know, this putz is dumber than a bag of the dumbest rocks I know.
Surly, llhan Omar doesn’t want to grant a Guaranteed Annual Income to those already on Welfare, to give so Much money for each Child that they have, why, those receiving Welfare would never go to work again, Surely you have got to be joking!
That’s literally her goal. CREATE PERPETUAL WELFARE for everyone…
Unfortunately, she is not joking.
I am with BB, SHE IS NOT joking..
Speaking about, ” dumber than a bag of Rocks , providing a ” a annual Guaranteed Income to those on Welfare as Omar suggested co u ld only mean one thing, Democrat Marxist party of America, ‘ Has her Head wrap on her Head much Too tight and she has become delusional.
1,200 plus 600 for each child , if you have 5 kids that’s 3,000 a month. Why work ever!!. There are income limits for welfare and food stamps. So even having 1 child(1200 + 600= 1800) will put you over the income limit. are they really going to give up welfare and food stamps and section 8 and public housing, Medicaid , free lunch at school, free,free,free ??? You know the answer and they will still cry racism
I’m all for it – as long as the recipients give up all other welfare programs (read: Food stamps, Welfare, Social Security, AFDC, subsidized housing, Medicare, Medicaid, etc.)!!
Social security is not an entitlement program. We pay our entire working life for it. It mainly helps seniors. Social security should only be for working people. All other programs ,get rid of them.
AND for god sake .. STOP PAYING SOCIAL SECURITY TO illegal invaders!!!
Under her plan, we would receive more from the government than I’ve ever earned per year! And she says that it would ” . . . make sure everyone has their basic needs like food, housing and healthcare met.”
I’ve done ok by myself, thank you! I’ve worked two jobs for a good share of my life to provide for my family. Her plan would remove any incentive to work hard and get ahead. In other words, she despises the American Dream.
When people don’t work for what they own, they don’t appreciate what they have. (Just look at any section 8 housing project.)
Her plan is a thinly veiled attack on free market enterprise, the one thing that has done more than anything else to make this country the financial empire of the world. In a few years, we would be another Venezuela. (She should just move there, and not shove us into the sewer of socialism).
You Commented , ” When People don-t Work for What they own, they don’t appreciate What they Have…. ” President Barack H. Obama , wouldn’t find anything wrong with those onWelfare and Living in ” Public Housing provided a Job for his personal Friend, Valery Jerette , didn’t it.??
Thsnk you for having and being a responsible citizen.
Taxpayers will have to pay for this boondoggle. Please make sure that all representatives and Senators pay their share
This idea is COMMUNISM with all of its insane and evil consequences in tow. This must NEVER happen.
Why doesn’t she go to Somalia and take care of her country? She’s giving away all of the hard earned taxpayer’s money to those who don’t work for their money. She’s an idiot, why is she still around? Whatever happened to the investigation of her being married to her campaign manager, paying him thousands of dollars? I guess it’s business as usual, running “Willy Nilly” throwing money away, after all it’s not her money…
Where does she expect the money to come from? This is a plan to destroy America and everything that makes her great: hard working people, challenges that make people stronger, everyone has opportunity and can make it through their own work and initiative. She, and anyone who thinks this is a good idea, are no friends of America or her people.
Ugly diaper head uses the homeless as one of the excuses for the guaranteed income. But it’s HER fault and the fault of the Minneapolis Mayor and Governor of Minnesota if there’s homeless people in that state. Several blocks of property where destroyed in Minneapolis, which includes some apartments. And with the lawless streets of that city along with the hostile business enviornment, jobs are fading away there. But go next door to Minnesota and those states have jobs plus law and order. Omar should leave her head where it come from, the sewer.
How’s about we SEIZE RICH hacks like her’s PROPERTIES and open THEM UP to the homeless.. AND SEE how they like it.
Yo commie, want some special almond flavored creamer for that coffee?
Of course she wants guaranteed income. She was elected by parasites so she has to take care of the parasites. The Democrat voters are parasites, criminals and the mentally ill. According to the Dems it is their God given right to have free everything and our God given duty to supply it.
WHICH is why for a LONG TIME< i have felt NO ONE ON GOVT assistance/welfare, SHOULD EVER Have the right to vote.. THEY ARE in essence, wards of the state.
I’m sure with inflation resulting form the communist party’s mad hatter economic policies, 1200 dollars a month won’t do much to buy 25 dollar mac-and cheese dinners, 15 dollar a gallon gas or 18000 dollar a month rent.
Reply to Scruffy Usn Retired, If I were receiving Welfare and I seen the flood of immigrants crossing America’s open borders I know by looking at the i.migrants coming to America that most of them are immediately going on the Welfare rolls.The Welfares rolls can’t continue to pay all those already receiving welfare already, much less take on these illegal immigrants, some way, the Welfare System will become over loade and some will be removed, or go broke.
If you thought it was expensive to live in the U.S., just wait ’til it’s “free”!
