Ocasio-Cortez and other local politicians and activists publicly opposed Amazon's move to the city.

"If we were willing to give away $3 billion for this deal, we could invest those $3 billion in our district ourselves, if we wanted to". We competed in and won the most hotly contested national economic development competition in the United States, resulting in at least 25,000-40,000 good paying jobs for our state and almost $30 billion dollars in new revenue to fund transit improvements, new housing, schools and countless other quality of life improvements.

Roseanne Barr has something to say about most things, especially when it comes to politics, so you'd better believe that she's weighing in with her thoughts on much-talked about U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. We can fix our subways. "We can put a lot of people to work for that money, if we wanted to", Ocasio-Cortez said last week.

"It used to be that we would protest wars".


"Green light for hush money, I can do all sorts of awful things, it's totally legal right now for me to pay people off, and that is considered speech, that money is considered speech", she hypothetically stated. "We are $4 billion less than we usually get and yet we are kicking out a company that would have been projected [to pay] over 10 years roughly $27 billion in taxes". A Qunnipiac poll conducted February 6 found that New York City voters approved of the plan 57 - 26 percent.

"Quick lesson: NYC wasn't handing cash to Amazon".

"This is it, this is the heart of civilization, right here", added the socialist leaning Ocasio-Cortez. They thanked her for speaking "the truth" and asked her to "preach on".

"Folks handling the failed deal treated community w/condescension+disdain for their legitimate concerns", she argued.
