American Senator Bernie Sanders Democratic Presidential Hopeful

“At a time of increasing bank fees, increasing ATM fees, increasing credit card fees, increasing minimum balance requirements, and the loss of many locally-owned banks to large, multi-billion dollar corporate institutions, credit unions today are more important than they have ever been… I make no apologies for being a strong supporter of credit unions. I want to see credit unions grow because they are good for the state of Vermont, and they are good for America. Congress chartered credit unions not only to help people of modest means, but to give ordinary Americans a not-for-profit alternative to for-profit banks.”
