ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK: Warren, Ocasio-Cortez Celebrate Amazon’s Plan to Ditch NYC

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.14.19

Prominent Democrats -including Elizabeth Warren and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez- hailed Amazon’s decision to abandon its New York City headquarters Thursday; bizarrely calling the move to cancel 25,000 new jobs a win for “everyday New Yorkers.”

“Anything is possible: today was the day a group of dedicated, everyday New Yorkers & their neighbors defeated Amazon’s corporate greed, its worker exploitation, and the power of the richest man in the world,” tweeted Cortez.

“One of the wealthiest companies on the planet – just walked away from billions in taxpayer bribes, all because some elected officials in New York aren’t sucking up to them enough. How long will we allow giant corporations to hold our democracy hostage?” added Warren.

BAD APPLES: Cuomo, De Blasio UNDER FIRE for $1.5 BILLION in Amazon Kickbacks

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.14.18

Governor Andrew Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio found themselves in hot-water this week with Big Apple residents “furious” after they discovered the two leaders agreed to $1.5 billion in taxpayer subsidies for Amazon’s new headquarters in the borough of Queens.

The prominent Democrats were accused of an “immoral waste of taxpayers’ money” as a growing number of constituents griped over the massive kickbacks as the city’s infrastructure continues to age and crumble.

“I think if the takeaway from the recent election in Queens, New York City and nationally is that we should actually step up corporate subsidies and billionaires getting billion-dollar bailouts — if that’s the takeaway, somebody’s not got their fingers on the pulse of Democrats, certainly, but people generally in this country,” New York City council member Jimmy Van Bramer.

NEW YORK NIXED: Amazon Abandons Plan to Build HQ in the Big Apple, Create 25k JOBS

Amazon confirmed Thursday they will no longer be constructing a massive headquarters in New York City in the coming months; abandoning their plans following a fierce backlash from liberal politicians over massive tax breaks for the giant corporation.

“After much thought and deliberation, we’ve decided not to move forward with our plans to build a headquarters for Amazon in Long Island City, Queens,” said the press release.

“For Amazon, the commitment to build a new headquarters requires positive, collaborative relationships with state and local elected officials who will be supportive over the long-term. While polls show that 70% of New Yorkers support our plans and investment, a number of state and local politicians have made it clear that they oppose our presence and will not work with us to build the type of relationships that are required to go forward with the project we and many others envisioned in Long Island City,” the statement reads.
