The Democrats" highly-touted "Green New Deal' hit a major snag this week, with economists now predicting the plan could cost as much as $93 trillion over a ten year period.

Online reaction to the 2-minute, 20-second video was divided. I know what I'm doing.

The contest for the Democratic presidential election next year is expected to be a clash between the liberal leanings of Ocasio-Cortez and other Democrats like Bernie Sanders versus the more moderate tones of Democrats like Joe Biden and Amy Klobuchar.

Sunrise Movement's Bay Area leader Morissa Zuckerman posted the debate on the group's Facebook page.

The 15-minute video of the impromptu Friday meeting captures the students and Feinstein debating the merits of the Green New Deal, an ambitious Democrat plan to shift the US economy from fossil fuels to renewable sources such as wind and solar power.

We need a name for people who don't have a plan consistent with science, and we need the courage to hold them accountable.

Instead, Feinstein said she supported an alternate plan. Yet he added that the meeting overall appeared to go well. The California Democrat argues that the policy is unworkable and says she doesn't agree with it. "I won't trust Sunrise content at face value anymore, as a result".

"We competed in and won the most hotly contested national economic development competition in the United States, resulting in at least 25,000-40,000 good paying jobs for our state and almost $30 billion in new revenue to fund transit improvements, new housing, schools, and countless other quality of life improvements", Cuomo said.

Yankees, Aaron Hicks agree to 7-year, $70M extension
With Hicks's deal in place, NY is expected to focus on extending reliever Dellin Betances , per Fancred's Jon Heyman. But Hicks' 27 homers were the most by a switch-hitting center fielder since Beltran hit the same amount in 2008.

The hosts of "Fox & Friends", President Donald Trump's favorite morning show, have accused Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) of advocating for "civilizational suicide". The ambitious plan would have the US economy focus on renewable energy sources instead of fossil fuel and coal.

Other Democrat senators who have voiced support for the plan include: Chris Murphy and Richard Blumenthal, of Connecticut; Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley, of OR; and Debbie Stabenow, of MI. "It doesn't have a single Republican vote, and Republicans control the United States Senate". Gay criticized some of the attacks against Ocasio-Cortez but said she was concerned about the congresswoman's reaction to recent questions from the Post, and she came to the defense of the paper for practicing "accountability journalism".

For longtime watchers of Feinstein's career, the scene was not a surprise.

While Ocasio-Cortez may think that the Republican lawmakers are old, she may have gotten the two parties confused.

Still, some Democratic stalwarts, like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senator Dianne Feinstein, have dismissed the deal.

In a statement hours after the clip went viral, Feinstein said she welcomed the "spirited discussion".

One activist countered, "we're trying to promote the Green New Deal". In giving the students copies, she told them it was "thoughtfully worked out" by experts and had a better chance of passing.

"Well, you didn't vote for me", the senator says.
