Just as the Senate voted down her ‘Green New Deal’ with a 57-0 vote, a video of freshman Representative Miss Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez throwing an empassioned temper tantrum.
In response to a GOP congressman who claimed that her proposal was ‘elitist’, she responded : “You want to tell people that their concern and their desire for clean air and clean water is elitist, tell that to the kids in the South Bronx which are suffering from the highest rates of childhood asthma in the country.”
“People are dying. They are dying,” she exclaimed. “And the response across the other side of the aisle is to introduce an amendment five minutes before a hearing.”
