So, two economic powerhouses in AOC and Bernie are going to fix all of our problems with banks and credit card companies? Is this plan also going to be written by a fifth grader like the NGD? Maybe provide a coloring book?

Interesting proposals. I would find it hilarious if they passed a cap on credit card companies... only for those companies to turn around and deny cards to the idiots with low credit scores they both pander to.

That's the inevitable outcome.  If anyone in Congress truly followed the aftermath of the Durbin Amendment to financial regulation, they'd see that the effects were far worse for the people they were trying to help.  All it did was curtail credit availability to people with poor credit history and eliminated overdraft protection for everybody else.  Just like price controls everywhere they've been tried.   You don't just reduce profits, you kill products and services.

 

But, yeay socialism.  This time it will work.

No, that's an intermediate step to the inevitable outcome: legislation enforcing the civil right to borrow money cheaply.

 

Because we learned absolutely nothing from the mortgage bond crisis.

So you're saying the political system would be better if I, as a voter, had the right to act on that desire to punch her in the mouth? I agree. ?

 

Yeah there's gotta be a first Amendment defense in there somewhere.

Where the first meets the second... I can do it as long as I put on bear skin gloves first, because then I’m using my bear arms.

The GOP is bad for fact checking my "dry humor/sarcasm", but Trump and the GOP are totally serious and should be taken literally when they make an obvious joke. They should be ceaselessly fact checked!

I can only imagine how dizzy they get constantly having to spin their own words and deeds.

Not very, I'm sure.

 

It's easy to spin bullschiff when you're conditioned believe that it's the audience's problem for not understanding your ever-changing and contradictory message. Or, in AOC's case, too stupid to understand that your message is contradictory.
