And, yes, I'm sure they do love her. She's attractive, vivacious, well-spoken, and saying things that are a little outside the mainstream - thus, newsworthy. So, again, why are you surprised?

because they're federal backed, and guess who pays for federal "stuff". we do.

this is the whole reason tuition is so high. schools know that these loans are guaranteed and being handed out to anyone with a pulse, so why WOULDN'T they increase tuition?

govt is the reverse midas touch. everything they touch turns to ****e.

If they do the math, and find that no one is selling at any price that makes sense, then dont buy. The seller will have to sit on it and do his own work.



The problem with this is was there investment was based on the fact you needed a medallion in order to pick up a fare. You paid to be a part of the business.

Lyft/Uber circumvented this. We would have a tiny fraction of rideshare drivers if they all had to pay 1M to start.


The city can't sell medallions now.
They were the ones who got the money for offering exclusivity while offering minimal protection.

The taxi riders should drive their cars right into city hall when politicians are entering the building.

AOC is a Far Left loon. Basically do the opposite of what she says and you will be fine.

Lyft/Uber falls under the same rules as other black car services. You must prearrange the ride before the driver can pick you up. They are not allowed to pick up fares of the street.

Official City taxis retain the exclusive right to pick up passengers of the street in Manhattan.
