Andrew Yang ran for presidency on a platform that included universal basic income, ranked-choice voting and automatic voter registration. After dropping out of the presidential race, Yang founded the Forward Party, which aims to bring together people from across the political spectrum. Yang argues the two-party system is broken and that we need a new way to do politics.
