Turns Out "Spooky 'Socialist' Proposals" Are Popular, Says AOC, As Poll Shows 70% of GOP Voters Back Plan to Cap Credit Card Rates

Jake Johnson, staff writer

A survey released Tuesday found that nearly 70 percent of Republican primary voters support a proposal by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders to cap credit card interest rates at 15 percent.

Meanwhile, in the bunker at Fox Spews the minions are testing sound bites espousing the intrinsic American value of the Freedom for Usury. Trump’s “uneducated” desperately need this schooling provided by Bernie, AOC, et al. Thank you for all that you are doing.

Absolutely agree with all you wrote, AOC, Bernie, Liz Warren, and all the other sane thinkers, all the new class of House Reps, are probably the best chance, hope that maybe, just maybe something better can be brought forward. And, dear, old Joe Biden, please just go away, back to the farm or where ever you enjoy and RETIRE, for real, for good, enjoy the time you have left, and stay the fuckj out of politics!

Biden will never go for this.

I wonder how low the rate would have to be to begin to see banksters quitting the business.

How exciting AOC! Here is a Socialist proposal for you - hands off Venezuela. You, Nancy, and Chuckie all support Trump in that effort? Please tell me I am wrong.

I don’t watch Fox except for Town Halls and a few clips I see on YouTube shows, so I did see Tucker Carlson do just what you said (Secular Talk: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TllENlTIIrY). I don’t know the facts around GHWB wanting to cap the interest rate himself at about the same level, but if true, it is a reminder of just how far the Republicans have moved on abortion and the economy (I don’t think they or most of the Democrats have moved on foreign policy much at all - it has been pretty much a uniform disaster since WWII).

Rank and file Dems and repubs might consider coming together on a number of issues and bypassing their divisive leadership (Trump and McConnell all the time and Pelosi and Chuck largely out of habit and in reaction)…

An apt choice of phrase.

AOC stated that she would defer to Pelosi and the Democratic establishment on the issue of Venezuela and refused to condemn U.S.aggression. I, too, have major concerns about her foreign policy stances.
