New York congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is ‘not amused’ at the gigantic new billboard erected at Times Square by the ‘jobs creator network.’

The press release by the organization who paid for the billboard, read: “Today, the Job Creators Network is putting up a billboard in Times Square calling out Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for the role she played in the recent termination of Amazon’s HQ2 that was planned to be constructed in Queens. The pullout of Amazon—because of anti-business politicians, notably Ocasio-Cortez—is a major blow to the New York economy. The retreat will not only cost the area $12 billion in economic activity, but 25,000 new jobs that would have paid an average salary of $150,000.”

In response, Ms Ocasio-Cortez said: “Few things effectively communicate the power we’ve built in fighting dark money & anti-worker policies like billionaire-funded groups blowing tons of cash on wack billboards (this one is funded by the Mercers).”

“PS fact that it’s in Times Sq tells you this isn’t for/by NYers.”
