“THANKS FOR NOTHING AOC” Billboard Lights Up Times Square

“THANKS FOR NOTHING AOC” Billboard Lights Up Times Square

After a conservative group called the Job Creators Network put up a digital ad in Times Square attacking Ocasio-Cortez for allegedly contributing to the loss of NYC jobs and wages, the 29-year-old congresswoman took to Twitter to call out the "billionaire-funded" organization.

Ms. Ocasio-Cortez, who holds a degree in economics, celebrated the news as a victory for working-class Americans against the "richest man in the world", Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, and claimed that the billions of dollars in promised tax incentives could be used in more productive ways. [The] fact that it's in Times Sq [uare] tells you this isn't for/by [New Yorkers]. The billboard, which provides a link to the website ThanksAOC.com, is expected to remain in the busy tourist spot for one week.

When the deal fell through, the company blamed politicians like Ocasio-Cortez and she openly praised the defeat of the plan.

Shots are still being fired in the fight over Amazon's canceled Queens campus.

"If we were willing to give away $3 billion for this deal, we could invest those $3 billion in our district ourselves, if we wanted to", Ocasio-Cortez said last week. We can fix our subways.

Goldman Sachs said in a note that it expects Opec output to average 31.1-million bpd in 2019, down from 31.9-million bpd. Prices continue to be supported by supply cuts led by the OPEC and its allies, including Russian Federation.

"Green light for hush money, I can do all sorts of awful things, it's totally legal right now for me to pay people off, and that is considered speech, that money is considered speech", she hypothetically stated.

Ocasio-Cortez celebrated the deal's downfall, asserting that Amazon's decision to drop its plans demonstrated that "anything is possible".

In another tweet, she mocked the group responsible for the billboard by comparing it to comments made by Steve Carell's character on the television show "The Office" during a trip to the Big Apple.

The story she's referring to was posted to The Washington Free Beacon on February 13, two days before Hasson's arrest.
