Feinstein confrontational with Green New Deal kids

Feinstein confrontational with Green New Deal kids

A video of an uncomfortable exchange between Sen. Her comments on Friday line up with some of the more disdainful observations on the Green New Deal from the Democratic old guard. Edward J. Markey (Mass.).

Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) shut down a far-left activist group after they used children to create a scene in her office in an attempt to push alarmist climate change policies.

Sunrise Movement's Bay Area leader Morissa Zuckerman posted the debate on the group's Facebook page.

In a statement Friday night about the confrontation, Feinstein said she "always welcomes the opportunity to hear from Californians who feel passionately about this issue and it remains a top priority of mine".

Ocasio-Cortez unveiled her solution to climate change, the Green New Deal, which would mobilize the entire USA economy to ensure that 100 percent renewable energy would be produced and Carbon dioxide emissions would be greatly reduced.

The senator interrupted, "That resolution will not pass the Senate".

In an interview with Reshma Saujani of "Girls Who Code", Ocasio-Cortez spoke of the doubters she had when she took on Rep. Joe Crowley (D., N.Y.) in her stunning Democratic primary upset past year and how she dismisses skeptics now. But Feinstein, a 27-year veteran of the Senate, argued that the legislation had no chance of passing the Republican-controlled chamber.

"That resolution will not pass the Senate, and you can take that back to whoever sent you here", she says, citing that the deal doesn't have a single Republican in favor of the proposal and "the key to good legislation is to tailor something that you write so that it can pass, and you can get a step ahead". After the teen said she was 16 and couldn't yet vote, Feinstein deadpanned, "Well, you didn't vote for me". "I don't respond to that", she continued.

"A man was just arrested last week with a stockpile of guns specifically trying to kill me & others,"Ocasio-Cortez added in her tweet". Feinstein responded. "Then you can do it your way".

In order to accomplish moving some of this pay down to entry-level staffers, Ocasio-Cortez has requested to cap her higher-level staff salaries at $80,000, which is much less than the $154,000 median salary for Washington office chiefs of staff. "You know what's interesting about this group is that I've been doing this for 30 years, I know what I'm doing".

Boeheim coaches and grieves: 'This is never going away'
Syracuse: Just being with the players and coaching them will help Boeheim cope with the tragic accident as the season winds down. He acknowledged the record on-campus crowd of 35,642 for a college basketball game.

Others said regardless of whether the kids were "right", it was Feinstein's treatment of the kids that was problematic. You come in here and you say it has to be my way or the highway.

"Great, I will", the teenager responded. Kamala D. Harris (Calif.), Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.), Cory Booker (N.J.) and Elizabeth Warren (Mass.).

The Sunrise Movement's capable moment on Friday shows the increasingly important tactic of recording direct contact with lawmakers to distribute on social media - executed most effectively by Ana Maria Archila and Maria Gallagher, who confronted then-Senator Jeff Flake about his vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh.

In the video, more than a dozen children are seen meeting with Feinstein hopes of discussing the deal and presenting her with a giant, handwritten letter asking her to vote yes.

This is a fight for our generation's survival. Some agreed with the Sunrise Movement's claim that was short and dismissive of the students. "You're supposed to listen to us, that's your job".
