AOC Brags About Chasing Amazon Away… Gets Scorched by Both Parties

Mental midget AOC has been bragging about getting Amazon to leave New York over her protests that they were getting a # billion dollar tax break. Cities make these deals because in the long run, they benefit greatly from the new jobs and the investment.

For instance, there were going to be 25,000 jobs with an average pay of $150,000 a year or a total of $3,750,000,000 to have state and city taxes deducted from it. And that does not even include the ancillary benefits. Suppliers, hotels, restaurants and practically every type of business would have seen an increase in business.

While thousands of New York residents are now missing a huge opportunity, Ocasio-Cortezcelebrated on Twitter.

“Anything is possible: today was the day a group of dedicated, everyday New Yorkers & their neighbors defeated Amazon’s corporate greed, its worker exploitation, and the power of the richest man in the world,” the socialist tweeted.

But New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo did not share the representative’s enthusiasm. In fact, he seemed livid at anti-Amazon New York politicians.

In a statement, Cuomo said that a “small group (of) politicians put their own narrow political interests above their community — which poll after poll showed overwhelmingly supported bringing Amazon to Long Island City — the state’s economic future and the best interests of the people of this state.”

Several experts also took the time to thoroughly roast Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter for her economic illiteracy.
