After AOC & Bernie Talk of Turning Post Office Into A Bank, They Announce $2 Billion In Losses

Linkedin Share

To see rookie lawmaker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Democrat Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (VT) in the same room is frightening enough.

To hear them talking policy is painful.

To see that they want to turn the post office into a bank without knowing it lost over $2 billion in three months is terrifying.

And yet, it happened…

The U.S. Postal Service lost more than $2 billion during the second quarter of the fiscal year, putting it on track to finish the current year more than $7 billion in the red—way worse than the nearly $4 billion in losses it posted last year.

In its quarterly fiscal report, published today, the Post Office reported small decreases in mail volume and overall revenue compared to the same quarter of 2018. Its big losses are driven by a sharp increase in expenses, primarily workers’ compensation costs, pension liabilities, and payments for retirees’ health benefits.

Check out their super awkward hug…

WATCH:

More from Bloomberg:

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders and Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez accused banks of acting as “modern-day loan sharks” and called on Congress to enact a federal limit of 15% on credit card interest rates.

The two self-identified democratic-socialists are set to propose legislation on Thursday capping rates on credit card and other consumer loans and letting post offices offer low-cost basic financial services, such as loans and checking and savings accounts.

An outline of the plan released ahead of their formal announcement sharply criticized banks for charging on average more than 17% interest on credit card balances while they are able to borrow money at less than 2.5%.

It’s definitely possible that Alexandria is the most attractive member of Congress.

She’s certainly not the smartest or most clever.

And yet, the New York Times thinks “men at Fox News” continue to pick on AOC because she’s soooo good looking and they could never land her in high school.

Ummm…sounds a little sexist, doesn’t it?

Did the NYT just reduce AOC to an object? Hmmm.

LOOK:

The men at Fox News have a sickly obsession with AOC, partly because they resent her cleverness, charisma and moral vitality, but mostly because they suspect that in high school she was one of those girls they had no hope of getting a date with

Reactions:

when you’re so woke you explain a female politician by her sex appeal

AOC is the perfect person to cover for Republicans. She constantly makes a fool of herself while Democrats have had no choice but to back everything she’s said and done because she’s become so powerful. In many ways, AOC is becoming the new face of their party. It’s amazing.

This is quite sexist, actually. @AOC has a mind and ideas that men can have a problem with. You just “mostly” reduced her to an object. You NYT Opinion folks are really on a hateful roll lately, eh?

Conservatives: The Green New Deal’s socialist policies would be economic suicide.

New Yorkers: You cost us tens of thousands of jobs.

Nancy Pelosi: You are a small fringe in the party. Democrats reject socialism.

NYT Opion: yOu HaVe A sUcH a cRuSh ????

NYT doing their best to boost AOC’s self-confidence. They’ve become TEEN VOGUE.

There’s something off about the way a lot of progressive dudes talk about AOC and I can’t put my finger on it but it looks like this:
