Sen. Feinstein debates children over climate change

Sen. Feinstein debates children over climate change”

When asked whether the shortened video version, edited by Sunrise Movement, is an accurate depiction of the exchange - Cina-Sklar said "absolutely". Defending her stance, the senator explained that Democrats are a minority in the Senate, suggesting that legislation with more conservative appeal would be more successful.

The children wrote a letter to Feinstein on a poster board decorated with hard-drawn animals and flowers, asking that she support the Green New Deal. The girl responded that she's 16 years old.

The senator interrupted, "That resolution will not pass the Senate". The veteran Democrat seemed to harshly criticize the children for their their requests that the longterm lawmaker back the 'Green New Deal, ' accusing them of presenting an ultimatum. And I know what I'm doing.

Feinstein noted how the plan lacks support from Republicans, who control the Senate.

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. Another neighbor, who has lived down the hall from the congresswoman's apartment for the last 40 years, said he'd never seen her or her boyfriend, Riley Roberts, who has claimed the address as his own since last spring. Feinstein said. "I've been doing this for 30 years".

Later, a young woman stresses the need for a climate plan with "bold, transformative action", and Feinstein replies, "Well, you know better than I do". Like, I just introduced the Green New Deal two weeks ago and it's creating all of this conversation. Why? Feinstein responded. "Then you can do it your way". "Because no one else has even tried".

"You know what's interesting about this group is I've been doing this for 30 years", Feinstein said. "I have been and remain committed to doing everything I can to enact real, meaningful climate change legislation", Feinstein said. You come in here and say it has to be my way or the highway. "I don't respond to that".

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". "You see her continuing to shut the kids down". Kamala D. Harris (Calif.), Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.), Cory Booker (N.J.) and Elizabeth Warren (Mass.).

On Friday, the Sunrise Movement posted a video of Sen.

Feinstein subsequently had copies of the resolution that she supports handed out to the activists in the room.

This is a fight for our generation's survival.

Through a spokesman, the freshman congresswoman strongly denied a Saturday report in the New York Post, which claimed there was scant evidence that she lives in the Bronx condo where she is registered to vote.

This longer video prompted praise from many of her supporters, who feel she handled it well. "Well, you didn't vote for me", Feinstein fired back.
