Feinstein confrontational with Green New Deal kids

Feinstein confrontational with Green New Deal kids

An exchange between Sen. Edward J. Markey (Mass.).

The students are members of Sunrise Movement, an activist group that encourages children to combat climate change. Nonetheless, her responses were exactly how not to respond to children terrified about their future, and they do not inspire confidence.

In the 15-minute version of the video, the children tell Feinstein that they've come to her to express their support for the Green New Deal.

"Well, you didn't vote for me", the lawmaker said.

The senator interrupted, "That resolution will not pass the Senate". But Feinstein, a 27-year veteran of the Senate, argued that the legislation had no chance of passing the Republican-controlled chamber.

The Green New Deal proposes a major restructuring of the entire United States economy with the goal of reversing climate change. The kids are kinda cute at first as they ask the six-term senator to sign on to a "transformative" plan whose component parts, price tag, and schedule are so delusional that Democratic contenders for the 2020 presidential nomination are dragging it is "aspirational" and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) waved it away as "the green dream, or whatever they call it".

"Well, it's not going to get turned around in 10 years", Feinstein said. "Maybe people should listen a little bit".

"Until then, we're in charge - and you're just shouting from the cheap seats", Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter. She also pointed out that she was recently re-elected by a margin of almost one million votes in California.

Despite deadly 690 crash, Boeheim to coach Saturday's SU game
The Syracuse coach had no alcohol in his system and it appears as though it was all a freak accident. Once he exited his vehicle , Boeheim drove by and struck the man.

Later in the clip, Feinstein tells a young activist, "Well, you know better than I do". "You come in here and say, it has to my way or the highway".

"Great, I will", the teenager responded.

"There's reasons why I can't, 'cause there's no way to pay for it", she says, adding, "I don't agree with what the resolution says". In a tweet earlier this month, President Trump likened the proposal to permanently eliminating "all Planes, Cars, Cows, Oil Gas & the Military".

Feinstein, in a statement to USA TODAY, did not apologize but said she wanted the children who visited her office to know they were heard and called the debate "spirited".

This is a fight for our generation's survival.

Once most of the children exit, several women stay and calmly chat with Feinstein. Some agreed with the Sunrise Movement's claim that was short and dismissive of the students. Others, including many conservatives, applauded her.

"Well, you didn't vote for me", Feinstein retorted. Toward the end of the longer video, the senator is seen speaking with one of the students about a potential internship opportunity.

'Unfortunately, It was a brief meeting but I want the children to known they were heard loud and clear.
