Let's make it simple math for the sake of discussion...

Let' say the "Universal Income" level is decided to be 20K a year. Right now, you probably pay 10K a year or so in taxes (federal, state, local, sales, etc) for the things you already receive like roads/bridges/police/fire/ambulance/etc/etc/etc....
