First of all, we're matching the insurances that Uber and Lyft are offering.
2.
- It's a $1 million liability insurance on both sides if you're in a motorized vehicle or not. - Okay.
3.
But what's special in Postmates' case is that we also offer a $50,000 occupational accident insurance,
4.
and that is an insurance that if you just wanna try our Postmates over the weekend,
5.
if you're in an accident, your medical expenses up to $50,000 are covered by Postmates
6.
regardless of the fact if you yourself have health insurance or not.

The fact that we're paying several more percentage of tax
2.
because it allows more people to have good health care in our country,
3.
do I think that's the right thing? Yes.
4.
Now, it has some problems, it has some things that need to be fixed about it,
5.
even for that poor family.
6.
But it's the right thing to do.
7.
To have millions of Americans go without health insurance,
8.
that's not the country I wanna live in.

Look, I'm sorry, I don't mean to be pedantic—

Well, the first thing is when we started Lyft 6 years ago,
2.
we said we want to build the safest transportation for our loved ones to get around in.
3.
So we looked at other modes of transportation whether it was taxis, limos, or transit,
4.
what they required of drivers and passengers,
5.
and then we created a new benchmark.
6.
So for for-hire vehicles, prior was about $750,000 of insurance.
7.
We set it at a million dollars

When do you believe we'll see self-driving cars?
2.
Well, a lot sooner than I think we would have thought even a couple years ago.
3.
The hardware is out riding around now.
4.
We're doing it and others are doing it.
5.

6.
and all these things that have to enable it.

"Non-essentials" are different for broke people.
2.
And I'll bet there's a big one you're wasting your money on: health insurance.
3.
Just think about all the money you'd save if you didn't pay for health insurance.

I mean, the whole notion of insurance is that you're insured
