Default AOC and Bernie Sanders use the Bible to denounce high interest rates

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Is Right—The Bible Denounces High Interest Rates
New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders have leaned heavily on the biblical origins of their Stop Loan Sharks Act. The Bible has a lot to say about money lending with high levels of interest and usury.
After launching the sweeping policy, which caps interest rates on credit cards and bans payday loans as well as reforming other sectors of the financial services industry, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted an invitation to the religious right to support the bill on the grounds of faith.

“Usury - aka high interest - happens to be explicitly denounced in the Bible (& in many other religions). Looking forward to having the religious right uphold their principles + sign onto my bill,” the freshman congresswoman tweeted along with an angel emoji, adding a less conciliatory parting shot. “Unless of course they’re only invoking religion to punish women + queer people,” she wrote.

"“The devil can cite Scripture for his purpose.
An evil soul producing holy witness
Is like a villain with a smiling cheek,
A goodly apple rotten at the heart.
O, what a goodly outside falsehood hath!”

― William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice

Shakespeare's play "The Merchant of Venice," contains Shylock, a miserly joo moneylender. See:

Quoting the Bible about usury then talking about queers in the same breath is what I expect of jooz!!!!!!

While I agree with the stated intent, I distrust Jews to actually create a law that fairly cracks down on usury. Usury being any interest at all, it's not just high interest. No doubt this bill will simply protect certain parties within the banking industry, and not help anyone with stifling debt.
