Amazon was to get tax breaks, NOT "taxpayer support".
AOC told them to take their 25,000 jobs elsewhere.
Because she is so smart, just like you.


A free ride while other businesses pay full taxes
A small business struggling to survive pays full rate while the wealthiest corporation in the US gets a free ride

Free ride? Try again:
"Gov. Andrew Cuomo's office estimated it (Amazon) would provide a revenue boost of $27.5 billion total for the state and city over the next 25 years."
Is there no limit to the bullshit you'll post just to further your inane arguments?

Why give the wealthiest corporation is America a tax break?

$27.5 billion in revenue
vs.
$0 in revenue
Which would you pick? (AOC picked the latter - again, because she is so smart)

mazon said it will also provide funding to the community through a Payment in Lieu of Tax, or PILOT program, based on Amazon’s property taxes on a portion of the development site. The money paid as a PILOT will be used to fund community infrastructure improvements “developed through input from residents during the planning process.”

The company will donate space on its campus for a tech startup incubator, and will donate a site for a new elementary or middle school.

The retail workers union called the offer to Amazon “embarrassing.”

“We should be demanding that they give back to the community and not drain public resources,” Stuart Applebaum, president of the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union. “Instead we got played. Amazon can afford to come here without handouts. It’s embarrassing to think that such a great city would need to beg them to come. They are coming here because they need to come here - because we offer so much. Tax payers shouldn’t be on the hook to help Amazon be profitable – it’s a massively profitable private business. New York, we can and should do better,”

It's pretty pathetic that anyone would offer AOC as a decent candidate, let alone the best. Just shows the weakness of democracy.

The company was still concerned about the daunting task of hiring 50,000 employees at once—even spread out among two locations. New York’s unexpectedly strong opposition made the solution obvious. Rather than fight a potentially losing battle, it would simply drop its Long Island City plans altogether and spread its 25,000 positions among the company’s 17 existing tech hubs around the country.

That left Virginia—America’s Top State for Business—the last state standing.

The company is finalizing plans for two 22-story office towers, with much more development to come. And it has begun hiring. The first division expected to open at HQ2 is expected to be the Alexa unit, which makes Amazon’s smart speaker system.

“Virginia is a terrific place to do business,” Huseman said. “They’re willing to partner with companies, they’re willing to think long-term, and they’re willing to think big picture. That’s what really stood out about Virginia.”.....

I believe Amazon gave Long Island, in the end (-:) partial funding of the housing that had been in the nixed deal. Cuomo said at the time it was the low point of his admin.

I'm not traitor.
True, every mirror 🪞 you looked into committed suicide so it wouldn’t reflect your image back at you…

Anyhoo, I bet you would vote for AOC if she was a Trump style Republican…

to put it mildly.
but she may be popular in Long Is City, where Amazon was going to bring 20K 150k per year jobs

And Abbott might not wheel fast enough to get out of town, lol

With degrees in economics and international relations AOC is the best possible choice for President. She missed only 0.3% of votes (2 of 701 votes) one of the lowest in Congress. AOC has a proven track record as a Liberal Progressive with strong emphasis on the environment, labor and women's rights.

She's smart, Puerto Rican, Liberal, cute, and checks just about every box on the Conservative hate list.

GO AOC!! 😍

We hear this type of mind numbing, child like simplicity from Liberal/ progressives all the time, which is either an exercise in their own self righteousness, or proof of the success of years of the mind conditioning the government media co-op, has used to create lost drones like AOC and sadly.... probably yourself.
