Sen. Feinstein Dismisses Youth Activists' Call for Green New Deal

World Resources Institute

He said he's been surprised to see the amount of emails and online messages he's gotten from Democrats in NY and California who do not agree with the direction of the party. "So I don't think that working on an issue for 30 years alone is what qualifies as - as what makes someone qualified to solve an issue", Ocasio-Cortez said in a clear swipe at Feinstein.

Varshini Prakash, executive director of the group that sponsored the visit, the Sunrise Movement, said in a statement that the incident shows a need for fundamental change in the Democratic Party. I know what I'm doing. Others, including many conservatives, applauded her.

A full version of the 15-minute interaction was also posted on the Sunrise Movement's Facebook page.

"I don't want to attack AOC in particular but her ideals and principles could completely destroy our economy". Yet he added that the meeting overall appeared to go well.

McCaskill said, "So I'm not chastising her". "I won't trust Sunrise content at face value anymore, as a result". Cory Booker, D-N.J., said he is "excited to support" the "bold action on climate change". She tells them she has some issues with the Green New Deal, such as how to pay for it, and that huge sums of money can't just be taken out of military budgets. The ambitious plan would have the USA economy focus on renewable energy sources instead of fossil fuel and coal.

The students passionately urged the California Democrat to support the legislation. "And even if you don't have kids there are still children here in the world and we have a moral obligation to them, to leave a better world for them". "It doesn't have a single Republican vote, and Republicans control the United States Senate". Ocasio-Cortez has said the holdup is due to a greedy landlord who is reportedly charging her more to rent the offices than he did her predecessor, New York Rep. Joe Crowley (D).

Nevertheless, on Sunday night Madonna certainly looked happy for her peer; and that hasn't always been the case. Ronson gave a hat tip to fellow collaborator Gaga for her being the one-woman army that she is.

For longtime watchers of Feinstein's career, the scene was not a surprise.

If she truly believed it was lazy or unAmerican or whatever to take a guaranteed job then there are a few things this heiress could do to prove the integrity she probably actually thinks she has.

When a teen tells Feinstein that she should listen to them, because they are her voters, Feinstein responds by asking the girl how old she is. You come in here, and you say it has to be my way or the highway. Feinstein, the oldest sitting senator at 85, was primaried from the left in the midterms by a candidate with a robust climate record, and has faced some criticism from Californians for not pursuing a more aggressive environmental agenda. In a response that went viral, Feinstein touted her own proposed climate resolution and emphasized that the kids were too young to vote for her. After Dick Durbin, the second-highest ranking Democrat in the Senate, read through the Green New Deal on Wednesday, he reportedly asked, "What in the heck is this?"

Feinstein replied, saying, "You know what's interesting about this group?"

As the group leaves the office, a young woman turns to the camera.
