I posted a quote in the UBI thread by Adrian Rogers which speaks directly to this, and it ain't good. Other than that, Yang is not offensive, seems like a nice enough guy, and would be somebody that as a person I would be proud to have as president. But not enough to get over UBI...
And that is a perfectly fair and reasonable position to take. For me, the biggest lack in political leadership today in this country is rationality and humility, and Yang ticks off both boxes.

[Note: I'm not going to get into a discussion on the pros and cons of UBI as it's a different thread, and Yang himself can speak better than I could ever do as to his reasons for promoting UBI -- as well as addressing the myriad of fears about UBI -- in the plethora of videos out there.]
