Jake Tapper in an exclusive interview

An example of ‘political hogwash’ at its finest!

Today on CNN’s State of the Union, 2016 GOP Presidential Hopeful and Florida Senator, Marco Rubio, joined chief Washington correspondent and anchor, Jake Tapper in an exclusive interview.


There seems to be a big chasm in economic policy that came out over the last few days I wanted to ask you about.

Secretary of State – former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took on what she called the sharing economy, companies such as Uber and Lyft that use contractors, not employees.

In your book, you have a chapter entitled “Making America Safe for Uber,” and you’re embracing these companies.

The Question

What’s wrong with Hillary Clinton’s push to encourage companies like Uber to offer health insurance, offer benefits?

The Answer?


Because she’s trapped in yesterday.

She’s trying to apply 20th century constricts to a 21st century innovative industry.

We face this over and over again.

We’re trying to regulate Internet development the way we regulated telephony, you know, telephone systems 20 years ago.

You cannot regulate 21st century industries with 20th century ideas.

The pace of innovation is too quick.

If I had explained to you what Uber was five years ago, it would have been impossible, 10 years ago, completely impossible.

The pace of change is so fast that the ability of government to keep up with it, it just can’t.

And her take on Airbnb, Lyft, Uber, these sorts of things is a perfect example of someone who’s trapped in the past, and cannot understand how much the world is changing, and how much it’s going to change in the years to come economically.


What was the Question?

What’s wrong with Hillary Clinton’s push to encourage companies like Uber to offer health insurance, offer benefits?


What was the Answer?


Blah , Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah!

In other words, if I talk a lot no one will remember that I am avoiding the correct answer.

Someone forgot to put the change in the jukebox!
