Even when the city and state of New York give the richest man in the world $3 billion dollars in tax breaks, they can’t convince him to bring the new Amazon HQ to the leftist hell hole. Mr Bezos is ...
I guess New York doesn’t want to be the business center of the United States anymore.
I do find it a bit ironic that they’ll complain about corporate welfare and everyone paying their fair share, and then offer crazy tax breaks to one of the highest profiting companies in the world....
so where will Amazon go now?
They were already going to Virginia and Tennessee. They confirmed they’re still headed to those locations.
oh. i didn't know about TN. thanks!
The way I’m reading this article, they have small numbers of employees in those states, but they’re entirely scrapped the 2nd HQ plan for now:
Those cities are still open to them putting their HQ there, though.
They will go where they can get the most political power.
The protesters are the leftist hell hole. They think success is evil. They want to tax him 120%. He hasn't signed in to the Green Deal. You think they're protesting him because of an affair? Or because he hasn't come out to say "I support infanticide!"
At least they could protest that Amazon would get huge tax breaks, while the Gov and Schumer talk about executive and corporate privileges, and the state will go bankrupt trying to pay for illegals' healthcare, housing, food, education-- but they'd be protesting on the wrong doorstep.
Maybe the protesters are just racist. After all, 90% of the Amazon employees I see are from India and China. And these AOC voters don't like them?
Amazon withdrew after community opposition. Is there anything you won’t lie about?
Guy ... keep deflecting! I’ve read the statement by Amazon. I’m sorry that your leftist cocoon is being crushed, but the pressure comes from the lies that you leftists push.
Think, can you post that statement? Because, according to this article, AOC and the community had a good bit to do with this. She sure does speak up a LOT for just a JUNIOR senator, doesn’t she?
Thatguy is correct. For once! 😳
Oh no! Think’s preprogrammed rants about leftists won’t work now. What’s he gonna do? Let’s watch 🍿
Maybe he’s fallen and can’t get up? 🤷♂️
Guy ... why did Amazon back out? The answer is the attacks from leftists. The hostile environment of mindless leftists!
Good. Fuck New York.
As of late there was a lot of opposition from New York with a lot of bad press...Amazon probably dodged a bullet.
Not a LOT. This article says a vocal minority. AOC always seems to get a lot of attention for such a junior senator.
