Italian court bans Uber because it’s BETTER than traditional taxis

Well this takes the cake. In Italy, a court has banned Uber.

Not because it’s dangerous.

And not because its customers were complaining about it.

Instead, the court banned Uber because – get this – it is BETTER than traditional taxis.

The legal term for this is “unfair competition.”

The complaint against Uber was filed by taxi driver unions.

I support unions when they do things that actually make sense, such as protecting the safety of coal miners.

I oppose unions when they do ridiculous things, such as trying to ban “unfair competition.”

If “unfair competition” was never allowed to exist, we would all be cavemen.

Bernie Sanders says Uber’s employees are treated unfairly, so why does his campaign use Uber for 100% of its taxi rides?

Bernie Sanders has criticized Uber for not having the same government regulations, worker protections, and employee benefits as regular taxi companies.

However, public campaign records show that Sanders’ campaign has actually used Uber for 100% of its taxi rides.

I would love to hear Sanders explain his hypocrisy.
