In this thesis I conduct a theoretical exploration of the concept of implementing a universal basic income in the United States. I use Feminist Marxism and Anarchy to argue that a universal basic income would be a reformist reform because of the strength it would give capitalism and the state. I argue this through analysis of two “near” universal basic incomes: Nixon's Family Assistance Plan and the COVID-19 stimulus checks.
