AOC did NOT vote against the bailout (I checked the video). She didn’t even support the motion by a Republican for a recorded vote! Yes, she gave a grandstanding speech against it to please her fans, but gave Pelosi left cover for the giveaway to Wall Street. Now Ms. Caruso-Cabrera is running because AOC isn’t covering for Pelosi and the Democratic establishment ENOUGH. This is how the 2-party system restricts the boundaries of electoral politics to please the wealthy. I’m an ex-aerospace worker. WE NEED A LABOR PARTY!

Caruso just moved to Queens? She used to live in Manhattan building owned by Trump? She is basically a Republican.
