‘Take some basic economics’: Bernie explains his ‘ridiculous’ vision of banking
You have to constantly double-check the verification symbol on @BernieSanders’ account to ensure that tweets like this aren’t being make use of a charade account. But rest assured, this one is genuinely Bernie.
I believe the function of banking should not be about making as much earnings as is practicable but instead ensuring affordable loans for Americans.

A presidential nominee in a major party tells banking shouldn’t be about making money. This dangerous, anti-capitalist commentary should remove him from the nomination process and presidential race. Instead, it further fires up his sycophantic supporters.
@SenSanders I wonder how Hillarybots are gonna argue against this completely rational statement.

Fortunately, many understand the economy well enough to know that such a proposal is certifiably insane.
@SenSanders I think you need to take some basic economics classes.

Without maximized earnings hope do you expect loans to be “affordable”? https :// t.co/ qRfW9ErK 9w

@SenSanders you are actually wrong. The purpose of all business is to make money.

@SenSanders then it would be called lending not banking

Hey Sanders you missed the memo, a bank is a business. The purpose of a business is 2 make money 4 shareholders https :// t.co/ GxexhqcFaL

Here’s an idea 😛 TAGEND
Maybe Bernie should open his own bank. https :// t.co/ mNC8 3b134h
