Sen. Bernie Sanders Opens a New Window. and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Opens a New Window. are apparently teaming up to take down Amazon's Opens a New Window. newest credit card for Prime members.
Amazon announced Monday Opens a New Window. it partnered with Synchrony Financial to create what it considers the "Amazon Credit Builder" Opens a New Window. for subscribers looking to build or rebuild their credit scores. Cardholders will get the same perks as the Amazon Store Card such as 5 percent back for online purchases and no annual fee but customers must be Prime members, paying Amazon's annual $119 membership fee.
Those who are accepted for the Amazon Credit Builder will have to make a security deposit within 60 days to receive a welcome gift card. The deposit will be refunded if someone closes their account or upgrades to the Amazon Store card. Those who are accepted but decide to opt out wont have their credit file impacted by their decision.

In the article, the interest rate for the card is 28.x% Bernie and AOC want it capped at 15%.
I suggest that Bernie and AOC make their own credit card company and cap it at 15%.
Amazon can offer credit to high risk borrowers all they like, as long as they don’t come to the taxpayers to bail them out in the event it costs them a ton of money.

Idiot Bezos enabling these terrorist communists for a few pieces of Chinese silver in the meantime.
What is wrong with Cali business people. Too much crack.
Opens a New Window
If Clueless AOC and Dead Weekend at Bernie’s go after Bezo, they might find themselves in an AMAZON box sent to Mohammed the Camel Herder in Outer
Oh just that thought gives me thrills and joy.
I hear that the Gobi Desert is very nice this time of year.
I actually have some experience with doing predatory lending. I was one of the first to lend on the peer to peer lending site Prosper.com. Lost my shirt on all the deadbats.
I also did some database work for a short time for a payday lending business. I don’t know who was more crooked, the lenders or the borrowers.
In short, that 28% is there for a reason.
Not, "I intend to bring it up for a vote."
He desires rule by 1 person.
Worked for Ameriquest.
Good for Synchrony.
Bernie & Alex should move to South America where they belong.
Nobody gets away with anything on FR.
A friend of mine stepped on a deadbat, and had to have a rabies shot.
Who could Bernie fleece in South America? The old commie has never held a real job. Career rabble rouser.
I think this thread is going to take wing....
... or not.
From Jeff Bezos standpoint he may have to choose from the lesser of two evils. Either its Donald Trump or Bernie,Biden and AOC. The Washington post may get a new editorial slant as hell freezes over.
haha nice picture!
These two idiots have no problem taxing everyone to death so how is this any different.
The Keep voting left Bezos and running that propaganda rag.
I actually don’t think you will find many Arabs up in Mongolia, thus no Mohammed the camel herder. In addition, I found that the Mongolians tend to have unpronounceable names. I also would not want the Mongolians inflicted with Bolshevik Bernie or clueless AOC, since they are still struggling to overcome the effects of decades being a Soviet state.
