      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.

          I think AOC should ask questions in fields she is familiar with, like......... or perhaps...... ok, ok!

          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?

            The US has two and a half million miles of pipelines criss crossing the country. There have been how many spills? I’d say their track record is pretty damn good

                    +legobuilder 369 The banks are dying to give me money, they don't leave me alone, the only difference is I know I'll have to pay them back one day and I don't blame other people if I'm in debt with them

                      its bloody stupid to hold a bank responsible! Can you imagine if every thing a bank finances (gives business loans ) is then held responsible for the outcome ?

                              In other words they payoff was worth the risk. They cared little for the environmental damage because the money they’ll make will outweigh the damages. Why put the environment in danger in the first place? 🤷🏻‍♂️

                                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!

You would think she would at the very least come prepared to research some basic facts on what WF actually financed...she looks horrible. She also needs to get some professional voice training on how to correctly annunciate her words, form proper sentence structure etc, and improve her overall nasally speaking capability beyond Grade 12. PS - do not to attend a committee hearing with questions written on the back of a cocktail napkin.

Holding a bank responsible for financing companies that choose to do whatever they please with their money. Maybe she should get into them financing cars to people that kill while drunk driving. So insane
