The GOP is cool, guys, and they want you to know it.
Out today from the Republican party is a petition in support of Uber. The petition is predictably partisan, blaming “liberal government bureaucrats” alongside “taxi unions” for “setting up roadblocks” and “issuing strangling regulations” to the detriment of Uber. Cities, according to the GOP, “need Uber.”
I don’t disagree.
Why is the GOP pushing for Uber now? Aside from the petition being a pretty simple attempt to collect email addresses and dollars (after you sign, you are presented with a large donation page for the GOP) there is legislation on the desk of Illinois governor Pat Quinn that would restrict ride-sharing services like Uber in the area.
