Oregon state lawmakers are considering a bill that would provide homeless people $1,000 a month with no strings attached.
Is it any wonder why so many people in Oregon are trying to secede to the state of Idaho?
If Oregon wants to become the homeless capital of the country, this is the best way to do it.

Oregon bill pays homeless people $1,000 a month
The state of Oregon is weighing a bill that would give homeless and low-income people $1,000 a month in Universal Basic Income.
The Oregon Legislature is considering a bill to establish a People’s Housing Assistance Fund demonstration program through the state Department of Human Services.
Oregon’s bill is the latest among blue states looking to hand out people in Universal Basic Income (UBI) programs.
According to Bill Track 50, the legislation would “provide 12 monthly payments of $1,000 to individuals experiencing homelessness, at risk of homelessness, severely rent-burdened or earning 60 percent or less of the area median income.”
The bill would require a study of who is receiving the money broken down among certain demographics, including race, veteran status and risk of domestic violence.
Additionally, the bill will sunset in January 2026.
The $1,000 payments can be used at the recipient’s discretion, but supporters say it will be used for rent and other living expenses.
Anyone with a brain knows that most of this money will be spent on alcohol and drugs, not rent and living expenses.
As if our tax dollars don’t pay enough for the homeless.
Why don’t we give them $1000/month in housing vouchers? Housing first, right?
Most of these end up in the hands of drug dealers.https://t.co/PievuzR4eq

How many people could the three west coast states lose to outward migration?
Are illegal aliens expecting to make up for lost income?

We’re going to give homeless people $1,000 a month for a year. After that we’ll give extensions so drug dealers don’t go out of business.https://t.co/baWZDmkxsq

Totally insane, and it’s being done on purpose.
