    '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?

    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!

    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.

    How is it a banks fault that a pipeline leaks? If I borrow money from Fargo to buy a car I don't get to assign blame to a bank when the car breaks down! This girl needs a law degree to understand liabilities and contributory negligence which in this senecio does not apply! If you want to nail Fargo to a wall then perhaps focus on the direct involvement with predatory lending before the "financial crash" of 2008. I'm sure however they would argue statutory issues as default protection from prosecution. Doesn't matter in the long run, banks will never be held to account for their actions!
