Yang becoming something of a curiosity in the 2020 race has at least shown me that there are way too many people and groups that feel the "U" in UBI is not a vital and necessary component of any successful basic income program. Extremely disappointing to see.

A non-universal basic income is not fair, it's not just, and it creates donut holes/income gaps that forces a person (often the most vulnerable and insecure) to make choices they shouldn't have to make in a modern society that cares for everyone as a human being.

If you're a basic income advocate, get on board with the absolutely-vital universal part of the program, and shun each and every proposal that shirks the responsibility of keeping the basic income truly universal with no exceptions carved out waiting to be expanded later on.
