Andrew Yang: This economy's rules aren't working for us; let's change them

The Freedom Dividend of $1,000 a month, no questions asked, will enable Iowans to expand the businesses and worry less about daily needs.

The American Dream is dying by the numbers.

Iíve seen it in Iowa, where farm bankruptcies have gone up 71% since 2018. Where your water supplies are contaminated. Where opioid deaths have more than tripled since 2005. Where more than one in seven of your children live in poverty, while the state is short 359,000 child care spaces. Where over 55% of your kids leave the state for new opportunities.

Iíve seen it across the country, where 78% of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck while 57% canít afford an unexpected $500 bill.

By the numbers, the economy is not working for us. Itís working for the 91 Fortune 500 companies that paid $0 in federal taxes. Itís working for pharmaceutical companies who rely on taxpayers to fund their research, only to massively overcharge those same taxpayers. Itís working for oil and coal companies, who demand tens of billions of dollars in government subsidies while poisoning our air and water. Most of all, itís working for politicians in Washington, D.C., who sold out the American people for campaign donations and lobbyist cash.
