New York Mayor slams Amazon’s decision to call off the deal to set HQ2 in Queens

During an appearance on NBC’s ’Meet the Press,’ NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio criticized Amazon’s decision to walk away from the deal as ’an example of an abuse of corporate power.’ He also said that US Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was wrong to have claimed the collapse of the Amazon deal would free up $3 billion to fix the city’s subways and hire more teachers.

The Dems need people to rely on a nanny state for everything. And of course, they want to be in charge of redistribution. Independent individuals is a threat to their power quest.

Big surprise, AOC doesn't understand how tax breaks work. I think tax breaks are stupid, but it brought jobs and money. Alot of both. AOC is a hipster that is afraid of big business.
