Supervisor Sebring Opposes Rideshare Tax
"The proposed Uber/Lyft rideshare tax is nothing more than a thinly veiled fascist attempt to penalize tax paying citizens for not riding the bus."
“The proposed Uber/Lyft rideshare tax is nothing more than a thinly veiled fascist attempt to penalize tax paying citizens for not riding the bus. The fact of the matter is that Milwaukee County has no legal obligation or mandate to provide public transportation which the proposed Uber/Lyft rideshare tax is purported to fund should the tax be implemented,” said Supervisor Sebring.
“Once again my colleagues on the Board of Supervisors have revealed their belief that taxpaying citizens are nothing more than cash machines to spit out unlimited monies on demand for whatever unnecessary purpose they see fit without consequence. If my colleagues on the Board want more people to ride the bus they should build a better, safer Milwaukee County Transit System that people will want to use, not be forced to use because they’re being taxed out of making their own choices…and they should do it within the financial constraints currently before them,” Sebring concluded.
