Socialist U.S. Representative-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is “outraged” that Amazon is going to invest billions of dollars and bring 25,000 jobs to New York City after the company announced Tuesday a new headquarters location. “Amazon is a billion-dollar company,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “The idea that it will receive hundreds of millions of dollars in tax breaks at a time when our subway is crumbling and our communities need MORE investment, not less, is extremely concerning to residents here.” Earth to AOC: jobs mean higher tax revenue, which means more money for socialists to redistribute. AOC is so anticapitalism that she can’t see when it is obviously working in her favor.

Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not happy that Amazon, the world’s most valuable company, has decided to invest billions of dollars and bring approximately 25,000 jobs to New York City.
The 28-year-old bartender turned politician responded to the news that Amazon is bringing a second headquarters to NYC by claiming, without evidence, that her community is “outraged.”
The Wall Street Journal reported Monday:
New York City and Northern Virginia will be the homes for Amazon.com Inc.’s second and third headquarters, according to people familiar with the matter, ending a more than yearlong public contest that started with 238 candidates and ended with a surprise split of its so-called HQ2.
Amazon is dividing the second headquarters evenly between New York’s Long Island City and Arlington County’s Crystal City neighborhoods, which are both located directly across from the major city centers.
