WATCH: AOC And Bernie Propose A Gov’t Option For Basic Banking Through The USPS — No, This Is Not Satire

Written by K. Walker on May 10, 2019

The Socialists want a “public” banking option that’s “not for profit” because the government does SUCH a great job running things.

Are these people high?

It makes you wonder.

Yesterday, the Democratic Socialist Dynamic Duo — one a freshman Congresswoman and the other a septuagenarian Senator — teamed up to save Americans from… banking discrimination.

Yes, indeed. They introduced the Loan Shark Prevention Act, which would cap credit card interest rates at 15 percent. During the press briefing, AOC and Bernie discussed other banking issues facing Americans.

Tyler O’Neil at PJ Media sufficiently mocked Occasional-Cortex on this “public option.”

It seems AOC has heard that 34 million American households are “unbanked” and she thinks the best solution is government — of course! But she also wants to phrase it like the government-takeover of health care: Let’s provide a “public option,” which will eventually become the only option. Oh, and let’s make it sound nice and caring, like the Salvation Army — it’s a non-profit!

It is true that millions of Americans lack access to the basic services that traditional banks provide, from checking and savings accounts to credit and debit cards to online payment options. Banks know there’s a problem, and so they have been creating innovative ways to meet the need.

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), the least constitutional part of Dodd-Frank, has tried to regulate the banks, stopping them from meeting the market needs of the unbanked.

O’Neil went on to point out that Dodd-Frank financial reform has “wreaked havoc on the U.S. banking system.” It was intended to keep big banks from muscling smaller banks out of the market, but the opposite has happened, and who are the losers when there is a lack of competition? The American people.

But our intrepid duo is convinced — convinced, I tell you! — that regulation and government intervention is the way to make things right for low-income Americans.

Watch her talk about the “public option” as Bernie sits there as though he’s about to be sick:

AOC proposed using the United States Postal Service.

Yes, that USPS.

This one right here:

And here:

By the way, she didn’t rule out the DMV as an option.

And we all know what service like that is like:

And that’s because:

Yep, that looks about right.

I think we all can relate to Les Claypool’s 1993 lyrics about the DMV:

I’ve been to hell. I spell it…I spell it DMV
Anyone that’s been there knows precisely what I mean
Stood there and I’ve waited and choked back the urge to scream

It’s not just the ridiculousness of potentially giving out sub-prime loans to high-risk clients backed by a government agency that reported a $3.9B loss for the fiscal year 2018 — the 12th year in a row, by the way, it’s that she proposed a public option where there doesn’t need to be one. Has she not heard of a thing called credit unions? Those are not-for-profit and are quite popular. 

But to a woman with a hammer (and sickle) everything looks like a government-issued nail.

A new player has now taken the field, one that came ‘out of nowhere’. She cut her teeth working for Bernie 2016, and has picked up a trick or two about ‘community activism’.

Alexandria Occasio-Cortez (‘AOC)’ has a take-no-prisoners arrogance, a deep loathing for the history and institutions of America, the unflinching zealotry of a convert to a cause, and a rigid ignorance impervious to all logic.

Add to that mix her youth, her social media savvy, and the unswerving obedience of the Media(D)’s Partisan Press, and you have a wannabe American revolutionary with lofty goals every bit as transformative as Lenin, Castro, Che Guevera or Mao. And naturally, she’ll conveniently forget any of her objections to ‘dark money’ so long as it applies to any of her wealthy benefactors.

She’s the perfect delivery system for the Soros agenda… as depicted by Doug Giles’ latest piece in his MAGA series, Soros & His Dummy.
