MessageMr. Speaker,
People who cannot support themselves should get a job, and "get it together". Our nation is not a charity.
The very basic income is fine for any individual. While the provisions cannot exceed a certain period of time.
Of course, we may be generous here in the government, but we also have to look after other things, today you have one person using the minimum income; tomorrow you have 10 thousand. While it doubles, triples, etc it breaks the national treasury. While because of unlimited minimum income, we will most likely have to deny some people of it. Not everyone without a job can get it in this kind of situation.

MessageMr. Speaker,

The allowance paid to the unemployed here will be high enough to maintain them in dignity but not so high as to discourage work, since it falls below the minimum wage. We really need to take poverty seriously in this country. We must not allow the chasm between rich and poor to expand. Those on the lowest incomes must not be left behind.

    Random fact: Particracy allows you to establish an unelected Head of State like a monarch or a President-for-life, but doing this is a bit of a process. First elect a candidate with the name "." to the Head of State position. Then change your law on the "Structure of the executive branch" to "The Head of State is hereditary and symbolic; the Head of Government chairs the cabinet" and change the "formal title of the Head of State" to how you want the new Head of State's title and name to appear (eg. King Percy XVI).

    Random quote: "The two greatest obstacles to democracy in the United States are, first, the widespread delusion among the poor that we have a democracy, and second, the chronic terror among the rich, lest we get it." Edward Dowling
