Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the democratic socialist who unseated Rep. Joe Crowley in a shocking upset earlier this year, expressed outrage on behalf of her constituents over the opening of a new Amazon headquarters in Long Island City, Queens.
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.

She is certifiable.
Occasional-Kotex should run for Speaker..................
Is she expressing her displeasure to Democrat sugar daddy Bezos?
All I have been hearing from Millenials in my area is that they want it and if they dont get it they are going to blame the Republicans in the state level for the social laws they are for.
The liberal who promises the most ‘free stuff’ wins every time.................see AZ Senate election...........
NY tax payers are subsidizing Amazon at $48,000 per employee...
“And”, she continued, “we can do without all those wage-slave jobs that will force our dependent class into the horrors of WORK!”
Welcome to Millennial USA.
They’re in charge now.
Her district elected the smartest and brightest among them....
How dare Amazon bring money and jobs to Long Island!
I think Amazon is going to quickly regret locating in NY and northern Virginia instead of Austin or Dallas.
Amazon is endangering the welfare checks of her constituents by providing actual jobs...
By investment she means government spending.
We need this woman and Nasty Pelosi to be the faces of the Demonrat Party.
Tunnel vision Alexandria.
Can’t see or understand all sides to an issue.
However, I wish she and democrats in the city would go ahead and force Amazon to leave the city. Plenty of other locations vying for such a store/warehouse/business. Only LOSER would be NY City, and Alexandria would never admit the error of her insanity, and neither would her supporters.
Meanwhile, people on food stamps are at the lowest levels in a decade.
She’s also complaining she can’t afford a place to live in DC.
Hey Amazon, come to Houston,TX.
Just think of her as “Pelosi II”.
Being only 29, and considering the NY voters, she may be there a LONG time.
