I am a fan of Bernie Sanders but We will never get changes in the government unless these basics are resolved.

I did some number crunching when it comes to Basic Income. I am hoping to hear some comments about it. Took me a little over an hour to compile this. Share if you like it smile emoticon
====================Basic Income ====================
To provide a basic income to everyone in the US the tax rate would have to increase (duh).
BUT remember every single person would get money back. And ALL financial assistance programs would be discontinued because the individual would have money to buy the things they need.
Average Individual According to Google
42000 Average Salary (WTF google)
- 10000 Current tax of 25%
= 32000 Spending money
42000 Average Salary
- 23000 Adjusted Tax of 55% (OMG BIG NUMBERS)
+ 12000 Basic Income (Everyone Gets it)
= 31000 Spending Money
The average person (not family) would only pay an extra $75 a month. 
Realistic Family According to People I know
65000 Salary of both parents
-16000 Current Tax of 25%
49000 Spending Money
65000 Salary of both parents
-36000 Adjusted Tax Rate of %55
+24000 Basic Income (For two 18+)
+5520 Basic Income (For two Kids)
58,520 Spending Money
So a family making 32,000 a year per parent would have extra money to support their kids and maybe, I dunno buy a house. Huh seems pretty good to me.
Unable to work individual
8000 Yearly Income from SSI
- 0 Taxes (Because of no income)
= 8000 Spending money
0 Yearly Income from SSI
- 0 Taxes (Because of no Extra Income)
+ 12000 Basic Income
12000 Spending Money
An extra $4000 more a month for the people who need it! AND others don't have to complain because... Get This... Everyone gets the money!!!! Rich/Poor/Disabled/Middle Class!
============ Where the numbers come from ==========
====================Tax Rates====================
10% Low Income Federal (22% Avarage)
10% Average State
7.6% On SS+Medicare + 6% paid by employer
6% Unemployment + 6% paid by employer
22.6% Total (37% Average Total)
================Double Check That ================
USA GDP is $16,000,000,000,000
Government Budget is $6,000,000,000,000 or 37%
=============Cost of Benefit Programs ===============
$943,300,000,000 was the cost of unemployment, wic, snap, school lunch, SS, supplement insurance and other Assistance Programs.
According to another government site $1,500,000,000,000 is collected via the SSI and Medicaid tax... I am gonna use the lesser of the two estimates
=============== Money Needed ===================
it would cost an extra $2,000,000,000,000 to get rid of all assistance programs and Implement Basic Income.
=============== Tax Increase =====================
2 trillion / 6 trillion = extra 33% taxes
=============== How much do I get ================
$2.9 trillion / population 
= $12,000 / year (for 18+)
$2500 / year (for < 18)
======== But Cost of living is more then 12k/year =========
My theory here implementing a Corporate cost of living tax on a state level to balance it out. When cost of living rises the percentage increases to give the public more money for the essentials.
For republicans and big business they would not have to fight the government for lower taxes because the rate would be proportional to the prices set.
They could work it out among themselves to lower the cost of living by working out business deals with property owners, utility companies, and grocery suppliers to lower the overall cost of living.

With all the web api's around there are no open source social media management software's floating around? I guess I could make my own... Post once and have it show up on all social networks.

Waiting on the Alcatel Idol 3 to come in the mail. Great phone My wife has been using it for a week and it seems like a fantastic purchase.

2020 is the the deadline for self driving cars, according to a unspoken uber/tesla deal. Given a perfect driving AI the Jobs lost will be:

Traffic cops, Mechanics, Gas stations, Bus drivers, Taxi cabs, Uber drivers, Truck drivers, Food delivery Drivers, Other delivery drivers (Postal workers, Ups, FedEx, Driving instructors, product suppliers), Insurance agents, Car dealers, Insurance agents, Ambulances (not paramedics), Public transportation workers (subway, bus, government sections), Handicap transportation assistance, Fun Bus drivers, Greyhound, Amtrak People Movers, Car washes, car manufacturers (If cars are rented out on a ride to ride basis)

As one horse said to another in the past, These horseless carriages will be the end of all horses as we know it.
