New York Freshman Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a Democrat Socialist, is in no way a fan of American capitalism.
Her latest tweet makes that abundantly clear.
In fact, AOC might’ve just cost New Yorkers 25,000 jobs.
Can everyday people come together and effectively organize against creeping overreach of one of the world’s biggest corporations?
Yes, they can.https://t.co/DqQoL7VH7O

Amazon is now reconsidering its NY headquarters.
Amazon.com is reconsidering its plan to bring a new headquarters and 25,000 jobs to New York City following local backlash.
Amazon executives have conducted internal discussions recently to reassess the New York headquarters and explore alternatives, per two people familiar with the situation, according to the Washington Post.
The Seattle-based e-retailer has not yet leased or bought office space in N.Y.C.
Are you insane. Here in Arizona there are four or five Amazon locations they provide good jobs pay $15 per hour and nobody is complaining about them here companies like these provide jobs and I love the service from Amazon

Excellent job stopping an extra 25,000 jobs from coming into your district. Well done.

There are some things a person just never expects to see.
One of those things would be far-left Whoopi Goldberg telling even further left Ocasio-Cortez to shut up for being such a loudmouth.
But it happened.
WATCH (start at 2:20)…
It seems like the other ladies of “The View” agreed with Whoopi, which is even weirder.
Democrat Senator Claire McCaskill lost her race to Republican Josh Hawley.
She didn’t leave quietly, though.
McCaskill went after “what’s her name” Ocasio-Cortez like she got paid to do it.
It’s pretty brutal.
From Daily Wire:
Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) warned against nominating “far-left” Democrats like socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez this week, saying that candidates like her “have not been in a place where the math is unforgiving to” their political views.
McCaskill made the remarks while appearing on a Thursday podcast with The New York Times where she blamed her loss on “irritating” pro-abortion activists and also warned against nominating far-left Democrats.
McCaskill: “What’s her name, [the one] everybody’s fascinated with from New York? I hope she listens to people who defeated Republicans because it’s the people who defeated Republicans in this election that we need to be emulating. Not the people who defeated Democrats in primaries” in deep blue districts.”
“They’re so passionate about their beliefs they feel if everyone would just be more pure, more people would come to the cause, and many of them have not been in a place where the math is unforgiving to that concept. And so, I just want to make sure that we don’t make a mistake and go so far to the left in nominating a candidate that we lose all those white working-class voters that have been a huge part of our party decades ago.”
“We have an opportunity in 2020 as long as we don’t go so far-left off the side of the earth that we alienate those people that, when they hear the word ‘free college,’ they hear that phrase, they think, ‘Oh, look, they’re giving away something to other people besides me again. I had to earn mine. Why aren’t they having to earn theirs?’ That thing is real. Sometimes, going too far, we turn off people and make election victories impossible.”
Sen. McCaskill says @Ocasio2018 and other freshman Dems are too "far left" and too focused on being "pure."

Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld has some thoughts on Alexandria:
This is what happens when you run on slogans and know nothing about actual policy or how things work.
Check out AOC’s tweet on “death panels”…
Actually, we have for-profit “death panels” now: they are companies + boards saying you’re on your own bc they won’t cover a critical procedure or medicine.
Maybe if the GOP stopped hiding behind this “socialist” rock they love to throw, they’d actually engage on-issue for once. https://t.co/4P2TrflkFX

Then see how quickly she gets destroyed…
But commercial insurance gives people choices about what coverages they want & decide to pay for
Your single payer nightmare will replace that with a one size fits none "choice" decided by faceless bureaucrats
Coverage for all
Treatment for few

Dear everyone hollering that things will be better when the govt gives coverage to everyone for everything
That doesn't work where you say it does, ask the Brits how they love the #NHS
You're all playing the Other People's $$$ will pay for it game
Free Healthcare ain't free
