AOC Gets Publicly Embarrassed In New York City For Second Time In Week

Democratic Rep. (D-NY) Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just got publicly embarrassed again in her hometown of New York City over her job-killing policies.

AOC led the misguided charge to block the Amazon deal after the enormously profitable company was able to extract from Democrat politicians running the city and state $3 billion in incentives to open a second headquarters in the city.

Amazon was caught unaware and pulled the deal and AOC has been under attack since.

From Breitbart: The Job Creators Network fired back at Democratic Rep. (D-NY) Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez with two more billboards in the heart of Times Square, this time roasting the left-wing Democrat after she attacked the group on social media.

“Hey AOC, Saw your wack tweet,” the second 7th Avenue billboard says, which is in response to an Ocasio-Cortez tweet that called JCN “wack.”

Last week, Job Creators Network had a giant billboard erected in Times Square which slammed Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for her role in driving Amazon’s decision to pull out of it announced plan to move it’s new headquarters to New York City.

“25,000 lost NYC jobs, $4 billion in lost wages, $12 billion in lost economic activity for NY — thanks for nothing, AOC!” the first billboard says.

Taking to Twitter, posted a pair of tweeted aimed at JCN.

“Hey AOC, Saw your wack tweet,” the first JCN billboard reads, with another below that says, “Hey AOC, this billboard cost about $4,000. But you cost NY 25,000 jobs and $4,000,000,000 in annual lost wages. Ouch!”

To be clear, Ocasio-Cortez took heat from elected officials in New York on both political parties, including left-wing New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.

“The Amazon pullout is a perfect example of what we’ve been saying: socialism takes and capitalism creates,” said Alfredo Ortiz, JCN President and CEO. “The economic consequences of Amazon’s pullout is just a small taste of the harm that is to come if Ocasio-Cortez’s anti-business canon comes to fruition and is made federal policy.”

This is the secind time she has been called out. From Breitbart:

Democratic Rep. (D-NY) Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the target of a new Job Creators Network billboard, which blasts the far-left socialist over Amazons decision to not move it’s new headquarters to New York City.

“Today, the Job Creators Network is putting up a billboard in Times Square calling out Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for the role she played in the recent termination of Amazon’s HQ2 that was planned to be constructed in Queens,” the Organization said in a press release. “The pullout of Amazon — because of anti-business politicians, notably Ocasio-Cortez — is a major blow to the New York economy. The retreat will not only cost the area $12 billion in economic activity, but 25,000 new jobs that would have paid an average salary of $150,000.”

Indeed, Ocasio-Cortez cheered Amazon’s decision to pull out of a deal to move its headquarters to New York City. The move would have brought a promised 25,000 high-paying jobs for her constituents and billions in tax revenue over the next decade.
