AOC consoled by other members after Israel Iron Dome House vote

Ocasio-Cortez, huddling with allies for several minutes, appeared to wipe her face multiple times and was speaking in an animated fashion with the members around her.

los 420-9 vote was an overwhelming rebuke of House progressives who Wednesday held up Democratscontinuing resolution because Iron Dome funding was included in the legislation. Because Republicans were strongly opposed to the legislation on the grounds that it would raise the debt ceiling, Democrats had too little margin for error and were forced to take the Iron Dome funding out.

After huddling with allies, during which time multiple other House members appeared to approach Ocasio-Cortez to comfort her, the congresswoman walked to a different part of the floor where she received a hug from yet another member.
