TRANSLATION: How NY did the heroic thing by rejecting an inhuman, tax-avoiding, slave-driving corporate behemoth that exemplifies everything that's wrong with modern capitalism.— Courage, mon brave! (@KievKirby) February 23, 2019
This Amazon/NYC saga reinforces a belief: when people are very angry, they become less discriminate about who/what they are angry at. Big/unnecessary loss for NY. “You don't need to be the State's Budget Director to know that a 9 to 1 return on your investment is a winner.” https://t.co/q2NYkoOujl— Scott Belsky (@scottbelsky) February 24, 2019
My favorite part "We underestimated the effect of the opposition's distortions and overestimated the intelligence and integrity of local elected officials."— Ryan Hurst (@rmhrisk) February 23, 2019
The Amazon HQ2 situation is a great example of just how little our representatives actually represent our interests.— Russ Laraway 🦅🌎⚓️ (@ral1) February 24, 2019
70% of New Yorkers supported this, and now 20-40K jobs gone.
Your reps - D&R alike - serve their interests & those of their financiers. Not yours. https://t.co/0D2lyJpsKA
Want to know what happens when the New Socialist Party masters outrage culture on social media? They drive jobs & the wealth-creating capitalists out of town. I predict @aoc & Co. will drive jobs off shore. No CEO wants to fight the @aoc army on social. https://t.co/LkjGZyPPzS— 🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄 (@Jason) February 23, 2019
Bull. This was not a math problem, but one of ethics. Leave that Seattle crap of the highest rent and home price increases in the country where it is. Not to mention 4x Uber surge pricing all day long.🙄— Giovanni Jo (@JoGiovanni_) February 23, 2019

😬 Details of the insanity of losing the Amazon deal. Unions, politicians and a vocal minority of eneducated folks killed their biggest opportunity in decades.— John-Daniel Trask (@traskjd) February 24, 2019
“25,000-40,000 jobs located in a part of Queens that has not seen any significant commercial development in decades” https://t.co/r6jXgLA8FP
This needed to be said. Political loudmouths hurt their constituents. They need to own it and quit hiding behind their BS rhetoric.— Mike Maples (@m2jr) February 23, 2019

New York state's budget director points how badly the city screwed itself by allowing false narratives on social media derail Amazon's HQ2.— Dare Obasanjo (@Carnage4Life) February 23, 2019
Amazon was going to get $3B in tax breaks if they created 25K jobs and $27B in revenue for the state. #OwnGoal https://t.co/qt8AmwkHMO pic.twitter.com/XD4ZhFt1zs
Not sure how many pundits talking about Amazon even read the deal or where it was going.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) February 19, 2019
$500+ million of the deal was *capital grants.*
$2.5 billion in tax breaks.
It’s fair to ask why we don’t invest the capital for public use, + why we don’t give working people a tax break. https://t.co/jUqaugUHYP

Wanna read a searing indictment of certain NY politicians who nuked the Amazon deal?
As a matter of fact, make copies, and give it to every stupid leftist you know.

“We overestimated the intelligence and integrity of local elected officials.” Ouch.— Ian Sigalow (@Sigalow) February 24, 2019
Also surprised to learn that a union paid fake protestors to stir the pot in Queens.

Open Letter From New York State Budget Director Robert Mujica Regarding Amazon | Governor Andrew M. Cuomo So @RepAOC mislead people again. This letter very interesting. So the 3 Billion Tax Break only if 27 Billion in revenue was created. AOCHOAX https://t.co/zHdpvn0yf4— WhoKnew? (@JohnKimbleSL) February 25, 2019
Incredible. The disconnection and disunity discussed here is incredibly unfortunate. No matter the size of your community, it takes hard work to make sure people and organizations are moving forward together in pursuing the same vision. https://t.co/IT85yu61er via @nygovcuomo— John Longshore (@johnlongshore) February 24, 2019
