Good Policy AND Good Politics

We can quibble about the details, but good for Bernie Sanders introducing legislation aimed at corrupt usury practices. If the Democrats could get behind stuff like this, then even if it doesn't pass they'd at least have taken a stand.

The constituency of people who are sick of getting screwed over by their credit card companies and nickle and dimed by their banks is vast. It's exactly these sorts of economic issues which once upon a time the Dems were clearly on the side of angels, and now they're just an incoherent muddle.
