Bernie and AOC are not so stupid as to ignore the “unintended consequences” of their plan to cap credit card interest at 15%.
They are fully aware that many, perhaps all, government interventions are cumulative and are means to a step-by-step transition to socialism.
The masses will applaud them for this “benevolent” act; when the perverse consequences of this intervention come to the fore, “capitalism” will predictably be blamed and more interventions to “fix” the new problems, lined up.
Eventually, the market will be almost fully paralyzed, at which point “capitalism” will be declared to “have failed,” with socialism being our only salvation.
It’ll work, too.
