U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar introduced two guaranteed income bills on Friday, aimed at sending $1,200 monthly checks to most Americans before the end of the decade, according to reports.
The SUPPORT Act would fund current local guaranteed income pilot programs around the country through a $2.5 billion grant program and findings would be taken between 2023 and 2027 toward the formation of a national program, WCCO-TV in Minneapolis reported.
Starting in 2028, the national program would send $1,200 per month for people making less than $75,000 a year or heads of household making less than $112,500 a year plus $600 for each child.
“Poverty is a choice,” Omar, a Minnesota Democrat, said in a statement about the bills. “For too long we have prioritized endless growth while millions are homeless, hungry or without healthcare. We as a nation have the ability to make sure everyone has their basic needs like food, housing and healthcare met.”
