AOC Wants a National Bank Run By the Post Office

Last year the post office recorded 1 billion in new revenue, while at the same time increasing their losses by 44%. What could possibly go wrong with that. She proposed the move along with fellow socialist Bernie Sanders.

The idea is to have the Post Office set itself up as a bank and would handle normal banking duties. They didn’t say if that includes credit cards with a frozen 15% interest rate. What happens if the prime rate goes over 18% like it did under Jimmy Carter? It would cost them 3% on all credit card transactions. This would be an absolute nightmare.

The good news is that neither one of them could ever get this bill passed.

What Could Possibly Go Wrong? AOC Wants a Government Bank Operated by the Post Office

Imagine a big government boondoggle with the disorganization of a poorly-run non-profit organization and “customer service” that treats customers like driver’s license applicants at the DMV. That’s how Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) wants banking to work.

America’s most infamous former bartender proposed this idea with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), the runner-up for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination.

“We should have a not-for-profit public option for basic banking services, and we should be piloting these projects through the U.S. Postal Service,” Ocasio-Cortez said, apparently with no irony.

In the video, a tired Sanders ends his yawn to make a gesture of agreement.
