Democrat Presidential candidate Andrew Yang has been promoting what he calls a “freedom dividend” for quite a while. Basically if he was elected and got his way, every American would get $1,000 per month and somehow the new dependency that would be created would give people more “freedom,” or something.
But in case just seeing it in writing wasn’t enough of an enticement, Yang has sweetened the deal with a picture:

For some reason we’re guessing that if Trump said “vote for me and there’s a cash reward in it for you” the Dems would have a big problem with it.
Talk about trying to buy votes. https://t.co/xX6R9x2vYp

Desperate times call for desperate measures:
Companies that lose money don't pay dividends.
The United States loses $1T per year these days.
If you want $1,000 or more once per month, you can work for it. https://t.co/7STakzWioM

Andrew, you've taken the phrase 'pimping for votes' a little too literally. Reel it in, Buddy.

Anybody can get this…. It's called having a job. And if you reduce taxes they get to keep most of it. Gov is not the solution. It's the problem

Econ 101 isn’t a popular course on the Left.
