Queens residents are outraged at Amazons plans to build part of its second headquarters in Long Island City, according to Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
The Democratic Socialist, who cruised to victory in the midterm elections after beating Rep. Joe Crowley (D-Queens) in an upset primary win in June, fired off a series of tweets Monday night into Tuesday regarding the blockbuster plans.
Weve been getting calls and outreach from Queens residents all day about this. The communitys response? Outrage, Ocasio-Cortez, who officially takes office in January, tweeted.
The 29-year-old went on to say: Amazon is a billion-dollar company. The idea that it will receive hundreds of millions of dollars in tax breaks at a time when our subway is crumbling and our communities need MORE investment, not less, is extremely concerning to residents here.

But, I thought you wanted jobs?
Enjoy the suck New York!
She has a point. Blind pigs and acorns and all that.
Well maybe she can demand heavy taxes on Amazon to force them to increase their prices and make small local stores more appealing? I am holding my breath on it.
I guess she’d rather no Amazon at all than a deal with Amazon. A glass half full is no good, ma’am?
Correction: I am not holding my breath on it
Tax breaks to businesses come out of the pockets of the taxpayers.
It’s a multi-billion dollar company!
When it’s compared to “The business not coming” then the economics look better.
Socialism involves central planning. Central planners control who, what, where, when, and how people work.
“Tax breaks to businesses come out of the pockets of the taxpayers.”
Not if you’re a Socialist! The financial tooth fairy makes everything come out just right for everyone
She’s stepping on Amazon for cash. When she gets paid off, she’ll shut up quickly.
Shut it down Alexandria!! Use your voice! And all that power you have in Congress now!! Hearings I say. We need hearings!!
Amazon is a TRILLION dollar company.
Very concerning? What the hell does that mean? The word concerning means pertaining to, regarding, or relating to someone or something. It does not mean what she thinks it means here. I think she’s looking for disconcerting.
Socialists: like the mentally retarded but without the excuse.
Indeed high taxes is what drove businesses off shore.
And the next thing you know, she’s living in a million dollar condo in Washington DC!
remember when she got caught using uber after going off on some tangent about taxis?
I’ll bet she uses amazon too
