    If banks are responsible to pay for anything done by those who they finance then they would not finance or would then have to put in to the finance an insurance policy to protect themselves for future possible problems. Which would then make it hard to finance a loan. Should banks have to pay for when they finance a car to someone and said person gets in to an accident?

    Well, we kind of need oil. You complain when we get jt over seas, yoj get mad. She doesn't even know what they pay for.
    I love that when he corrects her. She cuts him off each time and moves to a different question.
    Does she know what financing is? If I crash my car, the bank doesn't care, as long as they get my money. She is an idiot.

    In the Maidan, in January 2014, the People of the Ukraine fought against a Dictatorial President Viktor Yanukovych, and chanted REVOLUTION! Just watch the movie, Winter On Fire. This is while the Arab Spring was going on. Now we have the American Spring! And we are massing the troops of citizens against the Oligarchy. And we will change things. Maybe not human nature! But at least we can protect ourselves and our children and the world they live in.

    It’s so clear that she does not grasp cause and effect or have any understanding of basic economics. You can she how idiotic she sounds when she attempts to links the Dakota pipeline to global warming than insinuate that banks should have to pay for sea walls lamo maybe she should get one of the drivers I see everyday on the morning commute and demanded they help build the sea wall to for driving to least we can all look up to her as an example of excellence she has been driving a Tesla for 40 years now , super impressive

    So if the banks lend you money and you go buy a car and wreck yourself the bank should pay the hospital bill and all damages caused by you?

    'It was a risk we were willing to take' - banker on investment in Dakota pipeline. What risk is the bank taking if they are not willing to pay for the clean up when the pipe line leaks and ruins the environment?
    'Why was the bank involved in the caging of children?' Ha ha, AOC follows the money so these dirty investments get exposed - keep up the good work. Rich bankers live their lovely lives on the profits from these dirty investments. Go AOC.

    Has anyone actually been sitting at their desk in work and though imagine if as a collective group everyone worker in this office just stood up and walked out... refused to return to work and demanded a higher pay what would be achieved there.
    Imagine the world coming together collectively and stopped paying tax’s, stopped putting money into banks, stopped working to make other rich and worked on their own life’s were money and power was not a thing... the constraints that hold us down are amazingly enough something we could easily stop but instead we fight argue and refused to work together... humanity ladies and gentlemen. Are you proud?

      To be fair, she was asking hypotheticals and he couldn’t give a straight answer that might incriminate himself or not be fact. It wasn’t until she finally framed it as a hypothetical question that he could give a response. It sounded like she may have mixed a couple facts up which is why he was saying he couldn’t answer. But this is what I gathered from watching this exchange.

      You already answered your own question - they are not taking any risks because they don't care a brass monkey about the environment and shrug off any responsibility for paying for the clean up when there is a spillage. It's win-win for the bank.

    All you guys mocking her and her "knowledge" .. she is proven again and again that she does her research and her questions are always punching to the line. I can't believe you guys would side with banks that clearly are financing harm to people and environment. You guys are probably the same pro-life assholes who are still missing the point and are just angry that this woman has been pursuing a path that other politicians were too scared to pursue. I salute you AOC!

    Here is how wells fargo (as well as all other banks) financing works, they see an opportunity to make money off of loans, they then create the money ( based on the fractional reserve lending system) out of thin air, leaving you to pay back the entire amount plus interests...and if they get into trouble with bad lending practices the government (aka the taxpayers, aka you, us) bails them out. What AOC is doing is whats needed to fix this broken system, im glad she is getting her feet wet for 2028

    AOC is so dumb. This shows how much Progressives love regulations and red tape. If she is implying banks will now be responsible for the operational integrity of any organization they lend money to - I guess we can skyrocketing interest rates in the future! So if an entrepreneur wants to open a restaurant and a customer gets food poisoning, the restaurant owner AND the bank is responsible? Does that mean the banks have to get subject matter experts to oversee operational measures on a daily basis to any organizations they lend money to?

    This lack of foresight and logic is why the Green New Deal is written the way it is - like a letter to Santa Claus.
