Bill de Blasio is doing his best to protect those poor unions since New Yorkers DARED to try more economically feasible methods of transportation to get around New York City. The nerve of these people to want OPTIONS when they get around, how dare they!?
Imagine passing a law to limit choice to protect the unions. Unbelievable.
And wow, the fact de Blasio is pretending that stopping ‘unchecked growth’ is a good a thing tells you everything you need to know about how awful the Left’s platform really is …
Our city is directly confronting a crisis that is driving working New Yorkers into poverty and our streets into gridlock. The unchecked growth of app-based for-hire vehicle companies has demanded action – and now we have it.

That’ll show those evil people trying to make money without the unions!
Jazz Shaw blasted him:
And you've "solved" it by taking away the income of working class people who are driving cars they own that were already on the streets anyway. You sold out to the cab companies, unions and lobbyists… again. https://t.co/skxXHRMKyA

Like a good Democrat, always putting the unions ahead of the people. But, to that point, these people keep electing these Democrats so it’s hard to feel overly sorry for them.
Gotta keep those rich folks that 'invested' in taxi medallions happy you know ?

HA HA HA HA HA.
The "city" gets a revenue string from cab licensing. It's all about the money and maintaining control at all costs. Bureaucrap? Is still, totalitarianism. Totalitarianism in all forms is evil.

And right at home in New York City apparently.
