Trade-off for voting for Pelosi. She gets to be Speaker, America has to deal with socialists on the Committee.
Wall Street had better brace itself, because the House Financial Services Committee is about to be loaded with some big names from the left wing of the Democratic Party.
Per Bloomberg, those names include Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.), Rashida Tlaib (Mich.), Katie Porter (Calif.) and Tulsi Gabbard (Hawaii).
“AOC” confirmed the news of her appointment on Twitter.
