Because we've gone a whole week without a story from that whacky AOC.


https://www.nytimes.com/2019/09/27/n...n-bailout.html

I swear news media must love this chick; she's the gift that keeps on giving. Publishers, editors, even owners must be sending her muffin baskets or something.

Did the poor taxi drivers have guns held to their heads while signing the loan papers to buy an overpriced medallion?


Is there anything stupider than buying an asset with the imagined certainty that its value can never go DOWN?


Wait till we hear the whining from condo buyers when THAT market collapses.


Hey, this is 'Murca, where only banks and insurance companies get bailouts.

It’s the same crap as student loan debt - whoever took those loans out to study ridiculous non paying majors like “gender studies” didn’t have a gun over their heads while they took out the loans.

And quite frankly, I don’t understand why it’s the taxpayers who have to bail anyone out - the deal was between the dummy students and the banks. Let banks absorb the costs. It was their risk not that of the US taxpayers!

I'm assuming this is aimed at yellow taxi drivers, so, apart from me being against government funded bailouts generally, I could never support this bill on principle. For years, discrimination against non-whites by yellow taxi drivers was legendary. This discrimination was both physical and geographical; interestingly enough, now that certain areas have diversified, the yellow taxis have no problem going there. Note, one of the taxi union heads is on record as advocating for racial profiling when picking up fares as a "safety" issue.

Services like Uber and livery cabs were lifesavers.

The issue with yellow cabs was that the TLC and NYC decided to get involved by issuing medallions. They should have never meddled in that business.

As long as it's "somebody else's money", AOC is more than willing to toss it into some "social justice giveaway" fund......
