Embattled Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez set her sights on JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon this week; blasting the executive and his organization for financing “major fossil fuel pipelines” across the country.
“JP Morgan agreed to pay out *$13 billion* over its massive role in mortgage schemes w the ‘08 recession. They also finance major fossil fuel pipelines. It’s big money. So maybe they *aren’t* the best authority on prioritizing economic wellbeing of everyday people & the planet,” posted Cortez on social media.

AOC EXPLODES: Cortez Says She ‘Doesn’t Care Anymore’, Screams ‘I’m the Boss’ on Climate Change
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continued to deflect criticism of her ‘Green New Deal’ over the weekend; repeatedly yelling “I’m the boss” when it comes to climate-change policy and future legislation.
“You know what? I don’t care anymore. Again, I’m at least trying and they’re not. The power is in the person who’s trying regardless of the success. If you’re trying you’ve got all the power,” claimed Cortez.

“I just introduced ‘Green New Deal’ two weeks ago and it’s creating all of this conversation. Why? Because no one else has even tried… You try, you do it. Because you’re not. Until you do it, I’m the boss. How about that?” she yelled.
AOC VS AMAZON: Cortez Says Amazon Can Return to NYC if they ‘Consult’ Local Communities
Embattled Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez opened the door for Amazon to return to the Big Apple this week; saying the technology giant must “consult” local communities that would be impacted by the new headquarters.
“One of the most concerning aspects in what happened with the deal previously is you have all of these folks in Long Island City, in Sunnyside, in Woodside and all the way out to Jackson Heights, that will be impacted by this and they were not consulted,” said Cortez at her New York City office Monday.
“What [Ocasio-Cortez] was vocal about was the process by which it happened,” her Chief of Staff told Bloomberg TV. “The deal was sort of sprung on the community without any input and there’s a real cost whenever tech companies come in without community input, rents go up, people get evicted, there’s an actual human cost that is associated with Amazon coming in.”
Cortez found herself in hot-water among New Yorkers after her fiery rhetoric and fierce opposition forced Amazon to abandon their plans to relocate to the Big Apple; effectively killing 25,000 new jobs and upwards of $27 billion in tax revenue.
