Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Wants Post Offices To Function As Government Run Banks (VIDEO)

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez represents one small district in New York, yet every time she is in the news, it’s because she is proposing some massive, national plan. Does she think she represents the whole country?

She is now proposing that post offices should also function as government controlled banks.

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.

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!

Here’s the video:

Does she ever do anything for the people of the district she represents?
