I'm skeptical of the macro effects of full basic income, and I also think the resentment argument undercuts BI. Voters are reluctant to pay for public servants doing useful work, let alone the "deserving" poor; I don't see them voting to pay able people to not work at all.

An "extra" $10,000 per person is redistributing 20% of US GDP. That's a lot, and will take high taxes, and someone making $40,000 almost certainly won't be getting $10,000 after clawback, and might even be negative (relative to no BI and lower taxes.)
