Socialists thrive on making things worse. The more jobs lefties destroy, the more supporters they gain.
So it’s no wonder that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez is celebrating Amazon’s pullout from New York. Nearly every city in the country had courted Amazon. New York City won, and then lost, because of its domestic Left.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez tweeted, “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 average lefty screaming about the deal wasn’t an “everyday” anything or even from New York.
Cortez is an architect’s daughter from Westchester wearing poorface.
And it’s possible to decry Amazon and the pandering of the deal, but to still recognize how much money and jobs it would have brought in to New York, whose economic base keeps crumbling.
a deal that would have seen 25,000 jobs, paying approximately $150,000 per year, enter Long Island City.
Amazon, based in Seattle, would have also occupied 8 million square feet of office space in Long Island City as part of its investment announced last November and would have generated “incremental tax revenue of more than $10 billion over the next 20 years as a result of Amazon’s investment and job creation.”
