Idiot of the Week
This week’s winner is Alexandria Occasio-Cortez. She cheered when Amazon announced they would not build a second headquarters in New York. This is the first time I have ever heard a politician be happy about lost jobs. Her reasoning seems to be that money given to Amazon should be spent elsewhere. She has an economics degree but doesn’t seem to have even a basic understanding of the subject. There is no pile of money sitting there waiting for Amazon. They were given a tax break. They would have still paid a lot of taxes. Now some other state will get them.
The damage she has done to New York goes well beyond the 25,000 lost jobs. This makes it less likely that other companies will invest in the state.
