Ocasio-Cortez Says She’s ‘The Boss’ and that People Probably Shouldn’t Have Children
Scandal ridden freshman congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez has gotten brazen lately, claiming she is the boss since no one else is stepping up, and questioning whether people should have children anymore!
The freshman congresswoman made the first comment at a “Girls Who Code” event in the Queens borough of New York City.
Ocasio-Cortez claimed that, regardless of success, the “power” goes to the individual who tries.
“Like I just introduced the Green New Deal two weeks ago, and it’s creating all of this conversation. Why? Because no one else has even tried. Because no one else has even tried,” she told moderator Reshma Saujani, founder and CEO of Girls Who Code.
“So people are like, ‘Oh it’s unrealistic. Oh it’s vague. Oh it doesn’t address this little minute thing,'” she added. “And I’m like, ‘You try. You do it. Cuz you’re not. Cuz you’re not. So, until you do it, I’m the boss.’ How about that?'”

Then later on, Ocasio-Cortez posed a question to her supporters during a streaming conversation from her kitchen Sunday night: “Is it okay to still have children” in spite of global warming?
Ocasio-Cortez said global warming was “going to kill us” if nothing was done to stop it.
There is a “scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very difficult, and it does lead, I think, young people to have a legitimate question,” Ocasio-Cortez said before going on to ask, “Is it okay to still have children?”
“Not just financially because people are graduating with 20, 30, $100,000 worth of student loan debt, and so they can’t even afford to have kids and a house, but also just this basic moral question, like ‘what do we do?’” Ocasio-Cortez continued.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says that climate change poses such a dire threat to humanity that it’s legitimate for anxious young people to question whether they should have kids.
“Our planet is going to hit disaster if we don’t turn this ship around and so it’s basically like, there’s a scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very difficult,”
Ocasio-Cortez also took a shot at California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who on Friday was ambushed by protesters leading schoolchildren to urge her to support the Green New Deal.
“You know what’s interesting about this group?” Feinstein told the activists after they confronted her at her office.
“I’ve been doing this for 30 years. I know what I’m doing. You come in here, and you say it has to be my way or the highway. I don’t respond to that,” Feinstein said.
“I’ve gotten elected, I just ran. I was elected by almost a million-vote plurality. And I know what I’m doing. So you know, maybe people should listen a little bit.”
Ocasio-Cortez introduced her Green New Deal resolution earlier in February alongside Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Ed Markey. The bill not only calls for the U.S. to dramatically transition 100 percent transition in just a few years, but also demands “upgrading” every single building in the country, addressing the emissions released from cow farts, and touches a number of other progressive issues.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., is fast-tracking the resolution through the Senate, enabling a vote as early as next week, in an effort to force Democrats and several of their presidential candidates to go on record as soon as next week on a plan that has attracted ridicule and split the party.
