For Immediate Release
May 11, 2020
A new poll of Iowa Democratic voters shows that an overwhelming majority support a temporary Universal Basic Income consisting of recurring payments of $2000/mo as part of the CARES-2 Covid-19 relief package.
In addition, support for a permanent UBI leads opposition by 8 points (43% for, 35% against, 23% unsure) among Democratic voters, with 54% of 18-45 year olds in favor.
We are urging all Congresspeople to come out support recurring Covid19 relief payments or at least make a public statement on what they are doing to relieve the economic impact of this crisis on everyday Iowans. Senate primary candidates should make note, as 36% of their constituents are yet undecided.
We need your help to make sure our elected leaders get the message loud and clear:
Please contact current members of Congress this week and tell them that you want to see temporary UBI payments as part of the CARES-2 Covid relief package
Please contact the 2020 Senate primary candidates and let them know that you support permanent UBI as a step towards economic resilience in America.
