there are a lot of words here but reading between the lines, AOC is saying that this was a controversial vote and she flinched
.@AOC explains her “present” vote on boosting funding for Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system - “To those who believe this reasoning is insufficient or cowardice - I understand.”

the AOC letter is a powerful, detailed explanation for why the bill was so worth opposing, attached to a very vague and abstract explanation for why she didn’t vote against it

final thing i will say: the people AOC says she was trying to calm with this decision won’t be calmed—instead, they’ll see that their hardline demands around Israel can have an impact even on someone like AOC, and they’ll remember that the next time

So she flinched and now she regrets it? That's the only explanation for her actions that make sense to me

I have to wonder why it's AOC that has to explain why she changed her vote after a heated confrontation with Dem leader Pelosi and not Pelosi on what she said to AOC that forced the change and emotional response. Obviously the non-answer from AOC is part of the Dem shakedown.

From the party of "We have to pass the bill to see what's in it" a "rushed" vote by "House leadership" (@thedemocrats, BTW), shouldn't be considered anything but SOP.
