De Blasio Says Ocasio-Cortez Didn’t Understand Amazon Deal

Mayor Bill de Blasio says Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez didn’t understand Amazon deal

Left Eats Left: New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio talks to Chuck Todd about Amazon’s decision to give up plans for a New York City expansion, during an interview with Meet the Press.

Why would Amazon put up with New York liberals who would just continue to target them when so many other opportunities exist? They dodged a bullet if you ask me.

Mayor Bill de Blasio said Sunday 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.

During an appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” de Blasio agreed when host Chuck Todd said that the tax breaks offered to Amazon weren’t “money you had over here. And it was going over there.”

“Correct,” de Blasio said.

He added: “And that $3 billion that would go back in tax incentives was only after we were getting the jobs and getting the revenue.”

To further drive home the point, Todd said, “There’s not $3 billion in money —”

“There’s no money — right,” de Blasio said. More

Most politicians like to brag about the jobs that they have helped to create, not chased away. Thousands of jobs lost, that would have put millions and millions into the local economy. 

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is just getting started… There is no telling how much business the little socialist will chase from her state before she is done.
