    This is a wonderful painting made by a very innovative and thinker showing her idea or thoughts of American Democracy. Part of the Democratic Party,Tim Johnson, State Senator in South Dakota, is drawing fire from his opinions about payday loans or lending. He is advocating for regulation, but not an outright ban, on payday loans. Tim Johnson received campaign contributions from payday loan lenders, but he says it doesn’t affect his position. He purports that while regulating practices so that they aren’t predatory is a good aim, but ban first and ask questions later policies benefit nobody, least of all the consumer, as they will be driven to far worse alternatives. That is a wise stance on payday loans from Tim Johnson..
