A group of young activists supporting legislation for a Green New Deal confronted Dem Senator Dianne Feinstein in a video released on twitter.
In the video, a group of middle and high school-age youth present the senator with a letter asking her to support the legislation and they repeat the talking points of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Feinstein responds by telling the kids that "we have our own Green New Deal," while rebuking the young activists for what she called a "my way or the highway" attitude.

This is how @SenFeinstein reacted to children asking her to support the #GreenNewDeal resolution -- with smugness + disrespect.— Sunrise Movement 🌅 (@sunrisemvmt) February 22, 2019
This is a fight for our generation's survival. Her reaction is why young people desperately want new leadership in Congress. pic.twitter.com/0zAkaxruMI
