    Cutting Amazon's tax rate in half, for instance, to get the HQ, isn't going to cause taxpayers to help pay for private business costs.

    How much does NYC collect now from the Amazon HQ?
    Would they collect more or less in the future?

    A better question is...why is welfare better for anyone instead of a good paying job? Duh?

    This was going to be an Amazon headquarters...not one of it's distribution centers. It would have meant good paying jobs. The kind that people raise a family on! Duh?

    Most of it was tax breaks, so the City still has their unsustainable overhead, but has to forego 25,000 new jobs

    Right. 25,000 good paying headquarters jobs? Do you really believe this? Seriously?

    Collect less? How does your family budget do when you ‘collect less’? Dumbass, city services still have to be paid for. NYC was going to have to invest in infrastructure at the site where Amazon was going to build. They listed all the new expenses.......oh, why the fuck am I bothering to give a Trumpanzee facts?

    The bad publicity was due to AOC.
    The bad publicity squelched the deal.

    Thank you, ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ!!!

    I guess I'll just mock your non-specific idiocy.
