US Senator Dianne Feinstein is under fire after video shows her arguing with children who visited her office in hopes of swaying her vote on climate change legislation. Feinstein rebuffed the children telling them, "I know what I'm doing". "Be quiet, come back when you grow up, '" Limbaugh said. "I don't respond to that", Feinstein added.
"I don't want to attack AOC in particular but her ideals and principles could completely destroy our economy". "I got elected by an nearly 1 million vote plurality".
"I'm trying to do the best I can, which was to write a responsible resolution", Feinstein said. "So maybe people should listen a little bit" (4:50 in the video).The Sunrise Movement posted livestreamed footage of the meeting on Facebook, calling Feinstein's remarks "condescending".
"Any plan that doesn't take bold, transformative action is not going to be what we need", one young woman said.
When Feinstein tries to conclude the meeting, a woman says the children "have decades of life that they hope to still have, and your leadership is so beautifully, beautifully possible", the senator replies, "That doesn't work with me, thank you". "Like, I'm sorry to break it to you".
Several 2020 Democratic presidential contenders are backing Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal, despite its staggering projected cost and requirement for a massive systemic overhaul.
Woods, one of the few outspoken conservatives in Hollywood, criticized the New York Democrat last month, calling her the most risky person in America.
"They've bought totally the indoctrination of climate change", Limbaugh told his audience, asking out loud why young liberals are fascinated with issues like Mars and rockets among other things. The announcement comes two months after the NY congresswoman made headlines when she said she would pay congressional interns $15 per hour and offer them benefits - another rarity, since these positions have often been unpaid. Which in turn means that, whatever becomes of the plan, it will have moved climate change - a serious issue that has had serious trouble gaining traction - to a commanding position in the national conversation. "This idea that if we just, you know, 'I've been working on this for x amount of years, '" is "not good enough", she said.
During her Instagram-live rant about climate change, Ocasio-Cortez took a jab at Feinstein. "You're locked up in here with ME". That's when the group followed her up to her office.
"I'm proud to co-sponsor @AOC and @EdMarkey's Green New Deal", Sen.
