Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Bernie Sanders unveiled their latest proposal Thursday calling for the creation of non-profit, government banks to be administered through the United States Postal Service.
“Credit card interest rates are outrageously high. With @RepAOC, we are introducing legislation to challenge the greed of Wall Street and protect consumers across America,” posted Sen. Sanders on social media.

“We should have a not-for-profit public option for basic banking services, and we should be piloting these projects through the US Postal Service or any other number of ways,” added Rep. Ocasio-Cortez.
BETO-MANIA: O’Rourke Says ‘Green New Deal’ Will Require Same ‘Sacrifice’ Made by US During WWII
Failed Texas Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke doubled-down on his support for Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’ ‘Green New Deal’ this week; saying Americans must be prepared to “sacrifice” on the same “scale” as World War II.
O’Rourke was speaking with supporters at the University of Virginia when he called on Congressional Democrats to pass the ‘New Deal,’ saying we all face an “existential challenge” posed by climate change.
“One of the reasons I like Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’s proposed Green New Deal is that it calls to mind another time in this country’s past when we faced an existential challenge,” O’Rourke said. “In that case, it was to our way of life to the western democracies, to our allies in Europe, to our fellow Americans.”
“In the midst of the Great Depression, this country was willing to sacrifice men and women all over the United States to make sure that we defeated Germany, and we won that war and for the following 75 years that we made this world safe for democracy,” O’Rourke added. “The Green New Deal calls that sacrifice and service in scale of commitment when it talks about the challenges that we face today.”
BOOKER GOES BERSERK: Explodes, Says ‘Green New Deal’ Same as FIGHTING NAZIS
Sen. Cory Booker doubled-down on Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’ ‘Green New Deal’ Friday; telling a crowd of supporters the fight against climate change is the same as those who fought against Nazi Germany during World War II.
“We have to deal with this, our planet is in peril. We need to be bold, that’s why I co-sponsored the resolution for the Green New Deal,” said Booker.
“We are a nation that has done impossible things before. We need to be bold again in America. When the planet has been imperiled in the past, who came forward to save earth from the scourge of Nazism? We came forward,” he added.
You can’t make this up.
