On the Record: Bernie Sanders on Basic Income

It is interesting how he always stresses the “standard of living” never directly saying he would be for BI in the form of cash payments. Also I wonder if when Nixon was discussing the NIT, if Bernie was around and what was and is his take on that and on the experiments done in the US. I am still not clear with what happened with the NIT, the Rutger Bregman chapter somehow seems to not tell the whole story. Does anyone have any other leads on this? I heard something about the Democrats opposing it because of minimum wage at some point…
