In light of recent developments, the Southwest Public Policy Institute is thrilled to announce our official support of Universal Basic Income, universal healthcare, government monopolization of education, and tax increases for the rich.
Our researchers have conducted extensive studies and found that these policies will lead to a fairer and more equal society, where everyone has access to the basic necessities of life. We firmly believe that this is the way forward for our country.
We understand that some may be skeptical of our position, but we assure you that our experts have carefully considered all the factors and come to this conclusion. We hope that this announcement will inspire others to join us in this bold vision for the future.
To pay for the massive increase in the welfare state, taxing the rich seems like the most feasible solution. Specifically, it has been proposed that the wealthiest 50% of households in the American Southwest should be taxed at 75%. However, a concern arises: how can we prevent the majority of southwestern Americans from falling into this high-income bracket? One proposed solution is to allow government monopolization of education.
While this approach may seem counterintuitive, the reasoning behind it is that by forcing poor education outcomes on as many of our population as possible, we can ensure that good jobs will not be available. This, in turn, will make sure that the majority of the population does not fall into the income bracket being taxed to support this expansion of government schooling and the launch of Universal Basic Income.
Enabling a government monopoly of education may lead to negative outcomes in terms of citizen skills and productivity; it is a necessary sacrifice to ensure that the costs of the universal welfare state can be met.

Happy April Fool’s Day!
I was flipping you off soon after I started reading….for some reason
Was finding this hard to believe, but our world has gone crazy
I was about to tell you right where to go with it until I realized what day it was.
With all the communists pushing just exactly this I fell for it hook, line, and sinker.
OK, you got me. Congratulations. Was formulating one of my razor sharp retorts and planning the 100 person tags. Loved it.
April Fool, almost funny🤣, because it is ludicrous, and that is the agenda of the policy makers, of our day. I vote negatory..!
OMG! Then I realized it’s April Fools Day…WHEW! That was very scary!
😱😱 🤣🤣 😎 April Fool’s
It’s certainly appropriate for April Fool’s Day. But for Butthead Biden and the Democrats, it doesn’t matter what day it is. They intend to tax the rich — that is, anyone above the poverty level — to pay for all of their giveaways. And their Universal Basic Income will ensure dependency (i.e., poverty) for the masses. As Butthead would say, no joke.
My first impulse was to unsubscribe.
I was so angry reading this and in disbelief. Good one.
Went back to the headline to see if I missed that the story was from the DNC.
Good April Fools joke.
