Democrats Just Made the Biggest Mistake Ever, and They are Actually Celebrating It

By

Democrats, at least those belonging to the party’s new branch of radicals, are celebrating perhaps the most idiotic political move ever.

Lead by none other than Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, a group of Democrats have successfully halted a plan by Amazon to build a massive new headquarters in New York City.

This Amazon “campus” would have brought 25,000 new jobs to the Big Apple, in addition to millions in property and income tax revenue, to say nothing of the huge bump to local economic activity.

But anti-capitalist Ocasio-Cortez was having none of it.

She managed to stir up fierce opposition to the Amazon move within the New York City Council, where two Amazon executives were viciously attacked over their company’s plans.

While Amazon noted that polls showed a firm 70 percent of New Yorkers wanted the Internet giant to set up shop in their city, without the cooperation of local and state political leaders, it couldn’t go forward with the move.

“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,” read a statement released by the company.

Remember all those accusations by conservatives that Democrats want to keep the electorate poor and dependent in order to control the public? Well, this is how it’s done. Deny them jobs by shooting down the companies that want to employ them.

Well, you can bet this is going to backfire next time New Yorkers go to the polls.

Seems these Democrats are too dense to understand that losing New York so many jobs and revenue for the city is going to play really badly for them in Republican electoral campaigns.
