Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is taking a victory lap after delivering the goods in her fight against Amazon.
The star freshman Democrat – along with other lawmakers – had strongly criticized the planned opening of Amazon’s second headquarters in New York.
So, after Jeff Bezos’ tech giant announced Thursday it was pulling the plug on its proposed Long Island City location, the Bronx native had something to celebrate.
Hey, @AOC – The $3B was in tax subsidies.
A reduction in taxes *paid* by @Amazon. Now that they're not in NYC, the amount of taxes will be reduced by … wait.
There will be ZERO TAX REVENUES or JOBS enjoyed by NYC residents.#Bravo Little Miss Hissy Fit! https://t.co/5IVQgyppKv

As a #LIC resident, I agree. All of my neighbors agree. Everybody who was protesting @Amazon did not live in the neighborhood. Politicians and activists are using this to serve their own causes. Real people will be hurt by their actions.
