Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez calls Green New Deal a 'life and death' issue

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ramped up the rhetoric in her push for a Green New Deal, describing it as a "life and death" issue.

The star freshman Democrat fired off a series of tweets Tuesday night about her controversial proposal.

"Don't mess with our future. When it comes to climate, it's all our lives at stake. The younger you are, the more consequences you'll see. It's life and death for us. And we will fight like it," she tweeted.
