Some of the top Democrats in Congress are targeting ride-share companies with legislation.
They see companies like Uber and Lyft as threats, not as entrepreneurial opportunities for people.
Yet, those very same people have racked up thousands in fares on those very companies.
And how do they get paid… with campaign funds, of course.
Democrats do want these ride-share companies to be considered gig jobs.
They want them unionized so they can get kickbacks from the union bosses.
They claim Uber and Lyft abuse their drivers, yet they use these services regularly.
Senators Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and Rep. Khanna (D-CA) have led a full-frontal assault on these companies.
Yet, each one of them racked up more than $500 in fares on these ride-share companies.
The bills, of course, all come out of campaign funds, so what do they care.
The legislation they all back is supported by major unions, who donate to their campaigns.
Warren, in September, stated, “That’s great for big tech, great for big corporations, and a disaster for American workers who are trying to pay the rent and keep food on the table.”
Warren spent $556.25 on Uber rides.
Sanders spent $847.85 on Uber and Lyft rides last year.
Khanna spent $953.61 on Lyft rides last year.
Keep in mind, the majority of people that drive for these companies do not want to get unionized, so why can’t these politicians just leave them alone and let them make their money?
Why… it’s simple. Just follow the money!
