Amazon announced on Thursday they are cancelling plans to build a headquarters in New York City.
Amazon blamed local politicians for the decision to nix their plans in New York City.
Socialist Rep. Ocasio Cortez cheered the loss of 120,000 high paying jobs in her community.
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.

Amazon spokesperson Jodi Seth blamed Socialist darling Ocasio-Cortez for the company’s decision to leave
An Amazon spokesperson blamed Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and her vocal resistance for the company’s shocking decision to cancel plans for its New York City headquarters on Thursday.
Polls showed that 70 percent of New Yorkers supported Amazon’s planned investment in the state…
…Jodi Seth, Amazon’s head of policy communications, told NBC News that same day the company blamed a few specific New York politicians for its decision.
“It wasn’t any one incident,” Seth noted. “It was that the environment over the course of the past three months had not got[ten] any better. There were some local and state elected officials who refused to meet with Amazon and criticized us day in and day out about the plan.”
“If you talk to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, it’s ‘Never Amazon,’” Seth added. “If you talk to [New York City Councilman Jimmy] Van Bramer [a Democrat], it’s unions.”
She actually believes that NYC was handing $3B to Amazon. These were tax deductions and the people that Amazon hired would have paid taxes and put money into the community. Economics major?
Read up a little on this, heard there was some corporate chatter; the law they passed to murder full-term baby negatively effected them. They thought it was bad juju. I would, too.
Of course, this Cortez woman had her hand in it, too. I thought she was just put in office to make a mockery of our system, and smoke & mirrors. Now, I'm thinking they WANT us to think she's a moron, so we don't take her seriously. She acts so dumb it's hard not to think it.
I'm wondering is she a Trojan horse. She's clearly is communist. Call it the Democrat Liberal Communist Left Party, it's ALL Communism, nothing less! She is the opposite of our Constitution. I feel she and other commies have no business in our government. She could possibly be the most dangerous person in office.
Great post, thank you! Sharing on twitter.
