Democrats and Republicans support Uber

Did you know Uber has bipartisan support? Democrats and Republicans alike support the expansion of Uber in cities across the country.

David Plouffe, President Obama’s campaign manager in 2008, serves as one of Uber’s top ambassadors. He actively works to help cities better understand how Uber operates so it can expand its presence.

John Hickenlooper, a Democrat who serves as Governor of Colorado, is also a strong supporter of Uber. He recently said, “In Colorado, we embrace innovation and disruptive technology. We push to be in the vanguard. Colorado has led the way on innovative transportation options like Uber.”

These are only a couple examples of prominent Democrats speaking in support of Uber.

Earlier this year the Republican National Committee set up an online petition in support of Uber. The petition said, “Our country was built on the entrepreneurial spirit. Our cities deserve innovative and effective solutions without government getting in the way. That’s what innovative businesses like Uber provide. And that’s why our cities need Uber.”

The Iowa chapter of Americans for Prosperity is also an outspoken supporter of Uber and ridesharing businesses. AFP is a prominent conservative organization whose mission is to “advocate for public policies that champion the principles of entrepreneurship and fiscal and regulatory restraint.”

Simply put, Uber crosses party lines and we have an opportunity to build a bipartisan coalition that can help educate city officials in Des Moines.

We need to take action. Join our coalition by liking our Facebook page and following us on Twitter. Then, contact your city council members and tell them why Des Moines needs Uber.
