Ocasio-Cortez tells Democrats she is in charge now

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has warned the Democratic elite that she and her cronies are now in charge of the party. 

“If you don’t like the #GreenNewDeal, then come up with your own ambitious, on-scale proposal to address the global climate crisis,” Ocasio-Cortez warned on Twitter.

“Until then, we’re in charge – and you’re just shouting from the cheap seats.”

Breitbart.com reports: Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet came after Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) was confronted by a group of school children and teenage activists who urged her to support the Green New Deal.

Video of the confrontation went viral on social media, and the activist group, Sunrise Movement, accused her of treating them with “smugness” and “disrespect”:


“You come in here, and you say it has to be my way or the highway. I don’t respond to that,” the California Democrat told the group, also saying that others should “listen a little bit.”

The Green New Deal proposes a major restructuring of the entire United States economy with the goal of reversing climate change.

Among other things, the plan seeks to guarantee the “economic security” of people “unwilling to work” and replace every combustion-engine vehicle.

President Trump has mocked the Green New Deal, saying, “It sounds like a high school term paper that got a low mark.”


  1. NO Feinstein you do NOT know what you’re doing or else you’d have handled this MUCH better – I say this as the daughter of a man who was one of Ronald Reagan’s to advisors. My dad founded and ran his own public relations business back in 1951, he never covered up for anyone, he only promoted what he thought were good companies/organizations. He later was tapped to work on Reagan’s campaign for president and aftrwards worked as one of his top aides. I learned alot from him and one thing I learned is this – When CHILDREN come to your door, you want to encourage them not tear them down. They were not “my way or the highway”, they were expressing their opinion at her office – something which ALL Americans are entitled to do but she treated them like unwanted solicitors and spoke down to them. I also say this as someone who also detests the Green New Deal and knows it is completely unsustainable we can’t afford it. So tell me Diane Feinstein how’s that CHINESE SPY driver of yours doing? Are you still passing him our secret technology? You have one helluva nerve lady, talking down to ANYONE. I lived in San Francisco when you were mayor there, you were a lousy mayor then and you’re a lousy senator now. The only thing you are good at is lying and being arrogant.
