  1. One more thing for all the post I just read don't be suckered by AOC because she hasn't done nothing but caused hatred since she stepped in D.C. and will not stop until her squad divide everyone so the democrats can rig the system…
    Do your own investigation please because CNN was already caught pushing propaganda and the rest of the msm is to…
    Watch fox

  2. I am not opposed or for postal banking but, to get the Federal government involved in more of your life is the wrong direction. I hear more & more people complain of their elected officials yet are willing to turn over more control to them.

  3. I almost never agree with her, but this might be the exception.


  5. I'll just stick with MY BANK …..thanks but no thanks………

  6. It seems to be the same case of crime as President Kim Young-sam, a South korean criminal, and Kim Hyun-cheol, his son. It is the same crime as Kim Young-sam and Kim Hyun-cheol of South korea, who committed evil crimes of abuse of authority by using the 'National Intelligence Service' of South korea. Investigate how President Biden and his son of the United States are using the CIA and FBI.

    한국의 범죄자인 김영삼 대통령과 그의 아들인 김현철과 똑 같은 범죄의 케이스인 것 같다. 한국의 국정원을 이용을 하여서 직권남용의 악한 범행을 저지른 한국의 김영삼과 김현철과 같은 범행이다. 미국의 바이든 대통령과 그의 아들이 CIA와 FBI를 어떻게 이용을 하고 있는지 집중 조사를 하여라.

    Of course, do a public investigation and put him in jail.

    This case is about the rise and fall of the United States.

    Impeach the president, the father of the criminal. naturally

    물론 공개 조사를하고 그를 감옥에 가두십시오.

    이 사건은 미국의 흥망이 결정이 나는 일입니다.

    범죄자의 아버지인 대통령도 탄핵을 하십시요. 당연히

  7. We need more people like AOC in every office at every level in the USA.
    When someone mentions a politician that is 'For the people' the top 2 I think of AOC and E. Warren.

  8. Now all that has to happen is get rid of the Trump administrations tinkering with the USPS (Dejoy)

  9. I've lived all those scenarios . Thought we were invisible . No matter how hard you try , years on end , there's no getting ahead . Really it's a treadmill you can't stay on . Worked all day , took my 2 small boys to the Y , where I cleaned for 2 hrs. That paid for the sitter in the evening so I could take a 4hr class . 20 hrs/wk for 6 wks. enabled me to get a good factory job with benefits . 4 yrs. later they moved the factory where labor was cheap . Back on the treadmill .

  10. That's normal here in Japan to go to the post office and use the ATM or wire and withdraw funds

  11. It is becoming easier to do nothing in this country and have the Government take care of everything. I have no incentive to work anymore.

  12. Will you need an ID 🤔😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  13. I am AOC, I have no idea what I'm talking about , but here is the answer to what we should do.

  14. I’m ok with it, as long as the infrastructure bill also modernizes out decaying systems which make the operation of these services so expensive through inefficiency.

    They do it in Europe. From my point of view, Europe is way ahead of America in may important categories which are critics for maintaining competition in a global economy.

    I don’t love the current postal service, but if they modernized, I could quickly learn to love it.

    Just need to get that trumpist out of there.

  15. I strongly agree with Cortez.

  16. So will it be free to cash my check at the post office instead of getting banked?

  17. AOC, the least productive person in government. The only waitress to bring nothing to the table.

  18. is a national security benefit to not have the most vulnerable been taking advantage of is a god good thing to do the right thing so mercy on the stick with you messure it will be used on you

  19. The USPS under it's current model isn't economically viable. This allows them to better serve the American people while at the same time improve their ability to sustain operations.

  20. Mark my words, this woman will be the first US female president. Righ white old men know nothing about how people actually live

  21. Fire Louis too, put that in the bill

  22. I appreciate your compassion Rep. Ocasio-Cortez but I don't enjoy the Postal Service. It "works" for bills, letters, certified mail, and maybe money orders. If I absolutely NEED for something to reach it's destination I use FedEx or UPS; even for important documents and especially packages.

  23. The government, the biggest vultures of all, has an issue with banks doing what they do themselves? Must be cutting into their profits too much.

    Also, ironic that a Marxist sells "Eat the rich" shirts for exorbitant prices.

  24. This is an idea LONG OVERDUE. The big banks lobbyists will be furious. But there is NO REASON why this should not be implemented immediately.

  25. Sounds cheaper to go to the bank 😂

  26. The post office cant even do basic post office now, like get your mail on time or not lose your mail. so lets have them do more. Not with DeJoy running it.

  27. Credit union will do. Most people who go to the check cashing place have no Social Security number.

  28. Ive been banking at the Japanese Post Office for about 5years now. Ive always wondered why American post office doesnt have a bank for a long time, its so convenient.

  29. How come abc news is not given the full story. Fox News shows the gun on his hand abc news cuts that part. Fake news want to create chaos and division and problems again again like cnn. Stop creating division.

  30. I think this is code for ‘Centralized Banking’ controlled by the federal government. Oh the Democrats are out of control.

  31. The company that can't get my mail right wants to hold my money?

  32. THANK you ✌️☮️🐕🐾💃💪💪💪🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸


  34. This is why we should never have locked down in the first place. But since the media pushed the fear, we are F**kd. Feds doubled money supply, lockdown crushed the economy, destroyed our food storage. Food should start skyrocketing here this summer. Its about to go down. Media keeps pushing racial division. People starting to drop dead from the zine. Here we go. The perfect shitstorm of human history is about to hit. All because of a flu with a 97% survival rate.

  35. Can't stand to hear her voice….grrrrrr..just stopped to post this…

  36. That’s what they do in France…. postal banking works perfect in France 🇫🇷

  37. Japan still has postal banking it's great

  38. If it runs those predatory "check cashing" places out of business I'm all for it.

  39. You can open a checking account for 20 bucks these days. What a moron

  40. This "girl" is such a childish baffoon it's absolutely embarrassing.

  41. You are Awesome AOC 🌹🌹🌹🌹💜💜💜🙏🏽💜

  42. Ex: Japanese Post Office, also known as JP Post. They combined banking with the Post Office bc they are located in various parts of the country (rural, urbanized, suburbs, etc.).

  43. 75 million Americans hate this women, hate what she stands for. Most call themselves Christian. Is it any wonder virtually all Evangelical pastors considered Trump the second coming?

  44. Take that $1400 stimulus check and go to a bank like Huntington (insert other name) and open an account. Use $50 to $100 to open the account take the rest in cash. Could keep what need at the moment and place the bulk in the account. They will send you a debt card in a few days.
