New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio unloaded on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Friday; slamming the Democratic-Socialist’s non-stop celebration after Amazon announced they would no longer be building a major headquarters in the Big Apple.
“As a progressive my entire life — and I ain’t changing — I’ll take on any progressive anywhere that thinks it’s a good idea to lose jobs and revenue because I think that’s out of touch with what working people want,” said De Blasio.

“I came up watching the mistakes of progressives of the past, unfortunately what happened in this city when it almost went to bankruptcy in the 1970s,” he added. “I saw all the times progressives did not show people effective governance and all the times progressives made the kinds of mistakes that alienated working people.”
“Working people are very smart and very discerning. They want jobs, they want revenue, they want the kinds of things that government can do for them,” he said. “They understand they have to be paid for.”
