Mayor Bill de Blasio Blasts Ocasio-Cortez For Pushing Amazon Out Of New York

Left Eats Left: Mayor Bill de Blasio blasts Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as ‘not progressive’ and ‘out of touch’ for pushing Amazon out of New York but she quips back ‘come for me all you want.’

This was not a warehouse. It was a headquarters and tech center. That’s highly skilled and high paying jobs. Not something an ex-bartender really could understand.

She fired back on Twitter saying: ‘Come for me all you want.’

Daily Mail:

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio slammed Congress freshman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claiming she’s ‘out of touch’ and is failing to be a ‘progressive’ leader after she helped push Amazon out of New York.

The liberal mayor took aim at the Democratic-Socialist Congresswoman, who boasts herself as a progressive voice, in politics in an interview with The Brian Lehrer Show radio show on Friday.

‘As a progressive my entire life — and I ain’t changing — I’ll take on any progressive anywhere that thinks it’s a good idea to lose jobs and revenue because I think that’s out of touch with what working people want,’ the mayor said on the WNYC radio show.

The Mayor spoke on his dismay that Amazon derailed their plans and heavily criticized Ocasio-Cortez for gloating about the cancellation by calling it a victory against ‘corporate greed’.

‘I came up watching the mistakes of progressives of the past, unfortunately what happened in this city when it almost went to bankruptcy in the 1970s. I saw all the times progressives did not show people effective governance and all the times progressives made the kinds of mistakes that alienated working people,’ De Blasio said.

‘Working people are very smart and very discerning. They want jobs, they want revenue, they want the kinds of things that government can do for them. They understand they have to be paid for,’ he added.

Tempers boiled on Thursday when Amazon pulled out of their plans to build a headquarters campus in Queens, New York. 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.
