It's the end of the American dream. There is universal basic income in here, a trillion dollars in the child tax credit that would go on forever, it goes to the affluent. There are other elements in here that changes the foundation of the way we work and live. The American dream is about striving and moving up and working hard. And this, none of these entitlements which go on well into the future are tied to work.
