Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was just humiliated on the world’s biggest stage
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez can’t string together two sentences without making a fool of herself.
Despite that, she continues to double down on her absurd job-killing proposals.
And now she got called out on the world’s biggest stage.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez staged a hissy fit when Amazon announced its plans to build a new headquarters in her district that would have created an estimated 25,000 new jobs.
Democrat Mayor Bill De Blasio had offered Amazon tax credits in order to secure the company’s plans to build the new headquarters.
That’s when Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez piped in, supporting efforts to derail the deal.
But now it’s blowing up in her face
A humiliating billboard was erected in Times Square calling out Ocasio-Cortez for destroying the job opportunity in her very own district.
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.
Few things effectively communicate the power we’ve built in fighting dark money & anti-worker policies like billionaire-funded groups blowing tons of cash on wack billboards (this one is funded by the Mercers).
(PS fact that it’s in Times Sq tells you this isn’t for/by NYers.) https://t.co/B4QTPi1r2k

Even liberals in the mainstream media called out Rep. Ocasio-Cortez.
There is a financial literacy epidemic in America.
Quick lesson: NYC wasn’t handing cash to Amazon. It was an incentive program based on job creation, producing tax revenue.
There isn’t a $3 billion pile of money that can now be spent on subways or education.

Mayor Bill De Blasio blasted her for sinking New York City’s opportunity to create 25,000 new jobs.
Not to mention the estimated $12 billion in economic activity that the Amazon site would have brought with it.
Workers and voters in her district aren’t happy with her either.
New Yorkers would have been considered among the top candidates for these new jobs.
But Ocasio-Cortez decided to fight Amazon and stop them from bringing new jobs to her district.
This move is blowing up in her face and could even mean she loses re-election for destroying such an amazing opportunity for her constituents.
