And so is the far Left for Amazon kowtowing to the far, far Left...

New York Governor Cuomo blasts AOC and left-wing Democrats for 'putting political interests above community' and driving away Amazon - despite polls showing most people supported tech giant's new HQ

Quote:
Governor Andrew Cuomo is blaming Congress freshman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her peers for derailing Amazon's plans to create a headquarters in New York City.

Amazon announced they were pulling the plug on their New York building plans on Thursday, citing a lack of cooperation between local politicians.

It marked major blow for the city's mayor and governor who overcame their differences to bring the retail giant to the East Coast.

Cuomo was so furious with Amazon's decision he released a statement saying the politicians who drove the e-commerce business away should be held accountable.

'A small group of politicians put their own narrow political interests above their community — which poll after poll showed overwhelmingly supported bringing Amazon to Long Island City — the state’s economic future and the best interests of the people of this state,' Cuomo said in a statement released on Thursday.

most people did not support it. the opinions were scattered. mostly we want to quit giving money to wealthy corporations instead of to schools and roads and health care. why should any state give "incentives" to jeff bezos who just paid his $0 income tax? then the state has to put in new traffic devices security and police? fvck that go to virginia and kentucky. if they wanna pay you fine.

From two days ago...

Majority of New Yorkers back Amazon HQ2 in Queens, this poll shows

Quote:
Despite vocal opposition by some legislators, a majority of voters in both New York City and the state support the deal to bring Amazon.com Inc. to Queens, a poll released Tuesday shows.

The Siena Research Institute found 56% of voters around the state support the project, which Amazon AMZN, -1.06% says will create 25,000 jobs. Siena poll director Don Levy said the project had majority support in almost every category. Among city residents polled by the upstate college, 58% supported the project and 35% were opposed when told of both the promised jobs and incentives.

“Upstate voters are evenly divided but suburban voters strongly approve and in New York City, where some local activists have voiced opposition, voters approve of the deal by 23 points,” Levy said in a press release.

Simply being a customer of a business and not wanting that business to get corporate welfare is not hypocrisy.

I think socialist are leeches.But at the same time it shouldn't take a leech to point out that corporate welfare is wrong.Corporate welfare should be banned all across the US.

Salty, most people, including you, who do not support it, think that now there is this big bucket somewhere that now contains 3 billion dollars that can be used for your pet projects.

There is no 3 billion dollars. That truck left with the Amazon caravan of 25,000 taxpaying jobs heading south.

Virginia, Kentucky, and the 17 other non NY Amazon expansion cities thank you. They now have billions for their pet projects.

A greater issue now is that no CRO will look at NY as a possible new area for expansion.

So now you are an expert on what the people of New York City need or don't need? How is loosing the prospect of 25,000 jobs a good thing?

While I agree with your assessment of Cuomo, to borrow a phrase "even a blind hog finds an acorn now and then" meaning that in this case, Cuomo was correct. AOC opposed this deal mainly because she doesn't have a clue about how a free market works and is pandering to the dumbest voters in her district. The fact that she was voted into Congress, is evidence that the voters in her district aren't any smarter than she is. They deserve each other.

if they are not going to hire many (if any) locals that's fine. Alcoa tried to campaign for mining in a protected medieval forest (across Fla-Ga line) and bring jobs to the community. They were minimum wage jobs of which there were already a plenty.
no i know this is tax incentive etc and taxes paid by a smaller employer would give more to the community. Another idea is Bezos offer training and/or education programs to the community so they can work at higher tech jobs.
yes southerners have gotten the raw end of this for decades now including the deal for a non union car plant.
so why are those folks still qualifying for food assistance and wait till the last minute for health care?
