Amazon has declared that it will pull back the offer to setup his second headquarters in New York City after facing massive opposition from socialist lawmakers. Fox News reports:
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is taking a victory lap after delivering the goods in her fight against Amazon.
The star freshman Democrat – along with other lawmakers – had strongly criticized the planned opening of Amazon’s second headquarters in New York.
So, after Jeff Bezos’ tech giant announced Thursday it was pulling the plug on its proposed Long Island City location, the Bronx native had something to celebrate.
“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,” she tweeted.
This is a sad story for New York, as many residents were looking forward to new jobs and an increased tax base. But this is what happens when socialists are elected to power.
New York residents elected those socialists to power. You reap what you sow.
