Almost every Democrat contender in 2020 has expressed support for the Green New Deal and the subsequent jobs guarantee, including Sens.
She has continued to draw media attention and mockery related to the Green New Deal and her statements, continuing with her striking back at critics of the deal at a recent event on New York City, where she said "no one else has even tried" to propose climate change policy before. "Cuz you're not. So, until you do it, I'm the boss.' How about that?'"
The 85-year-old senior California senator just won reelection against a more progressive challenger in the general election last November and is now the oldest senator in office. After Dick Durbin, the second-highest ranking Democrat in the Senate, read through the Green New Deal on Wednesday, he reportedly asked, "What in the heck is this?" In it, Feinstein acknowledges that she might vote for a pending resolution for the so-called Green New Deal, despite her opposition to its far-reaching implications and costs.
"The Green New Deal is clearly very expensive", the authors of the study wrote.

In a post on her Twitter, Feinstein herself responded to the controversy, saying she wanted the group to know they were "heard loud and clear". Others argued that she was firm yet polite in trying to explain the political realities of Washington to the children, and that the video was edited to make her look as bad as possible.
"And I'm like, 'You try". The only 2 parties that can represent the workingclass and staunchly support all environmental improvement measures 100% are Peace & Freedom Party and the Green Party, because both parties refuse to accept corporate contributions, unlike the Democrat and Republican Parties.
To that, Feinstein said: "The U.S. government does a lot of things with the money, and they're important things, and you just can't go in and say, OK, we're going to take hundreds of millions from here, and hundreds of millions from there".
Fact check: As Newsweek points out, "Ocasio-Cortez didn't say that young people do not want to procreate, nor did she say that future generations should not have children at all". Toward the end of the longer video, the senator is seen speaking with one of the students about a potential internship opportunity. "I have been and remain committed to doing everything I can to enact real, meaningful climate change legislation". Zuckerman said the group had earlier sought a meeting with Feinstein, but the senator's staff said she was unavailable.
We need a name for people who don't have a plan consistent with science, and we need the courage to hold them accountable.
