  • You didn’t vote for me’ Watch this Democratic senator dismiss children begging for the Green New Deal

Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said that it's "legitimate" for young people to ask if it's okay to have children because of the threat of climate change.

"Some scientists have said that we have 12 years to turn this around", one girl said. Dianne Feinstein and a group of San Francisco Bay Area students squared off over climate change in a sometimes tense exchange captured on video and widely shared on social media. "You didn't vote for me", Feinstein told one 16-year-old after learning she was under the legal voting age.

Young activist two: The government is supposed to be for the people, and by the people, and all for the people. She lectures the kids that she just won re-election by a million votes and reiterates "I know what I'm doing".

"We had a spirited discussion and I presented the group with my draft resolution that provides specific responses to the climate change crisis, which I plan to introduce soon". The group also posted a recording of the full livestream, during which the sense of anger eases up about eight minutes in, when Feinstein forces her own version of an environmental action plan on to the kids and the adults.

The exchange comes as moderate Democrats grapple with the Green New Deal, a 10-year plan to mitigate climate change championed by progressives such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of NY. Ed Markey, D-Massachusetts, calls for drastic measures to reduce the effects of climate change. "I don't respond to that", she continued.

"I didn't expect anything to go viral, but now that it has I think we should just keep advocating to get the Green New Deal", Jasia said.

Republicans have mocked the Green New Deal as a progressive pipedream that would drive the economy off a cliff and lead to a huge tax increase, calling it evidence of the creep of socialism in the Democratic party. I know what I'm doing. I'm 29 years old.

Ocasio-Cortez - who has not actually endorsed the new venture featuring her likeness - amazed the comic book community recently, quoting Alan Moore's graphic novel Watchmen in a tweet to her critics: "None of you understand".

There, one young activist explained that they were "trying to ask you to vote yes on the Green New Deal", legislation proposed by Sen.

The Post reported that despite Ocasio-Cortez being back in her district for events with her constituents this past week, no one was able to confirm if she still lived at the Bronx condo that she has had listed on her voter registration since 2012.

"If you watch the whole interaction, to me if anything, it's more horrifying", she said.

The meeting was organized by the Sunrise Movement, the same climate group that staged a sit-in in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office to demand she support the GND after the midterms.
