Yup. Too many people confuse minimum income with basic income/negative income tax.The latter two are what economists generally recommend because of incentives and easy of management.
Basic income and negative income tax are nearly economically equivalent (with different tax scales). But basic income is probably the better solution of the two. The problem with the negative income tax is that taxing happens on a yearly basis, while income works better on a monthly basis (and even that is overestimating the judgment of some people). So you really want something to fix the general disconnect.
And the absolutely easiest way is to simply pay out a basic income to every adult on a monthly basis while withholding taxes for the IRS. The IRS then doing its normal work on a yearly basis.
