WASHINGTON, D.C. (FM NewsTalk 97.1) - Just when you thought she couldn't possibly say anything more outlandish than the last, Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez does it again.

On an Instagram Live video, Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, while preparing food in her kitchen, suggested that people shouldn't have kids because of climate change.

There is “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.

She then proceeds to ask the question, “Is it okay to still have children?”

She says she's asking the question not just because people can't afford kids because of mounting debt, but "also just this basic moral question, like ‘what do we do?'"

Since being elected, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has introduced a Green New Deal resolution that would move the country toward 100 percent renewable energy usage by 2030.

She has not yet answered how she would pay for that plan, facing criticism from her own party.
