Carolyn Maloney is the Democratic party representative from New York's 12th congressional district. Maloney is a member of the totalitarian-dominated Congressional Progressive Caucus. Maloney co-sponsored the communist Medicare for All proposal.
Green New Deal
Maloney, who supports the Green New Deal, was livid when her fellow communists killed the prospect of Amazon bringing its main headquarters to New York and creating 25,000 jobs with wages averaging $150,000. Elizabeth Warren and Ocasio-Cortez took credit for killing the deal.CNN reported the fight over Amazon is the fight for the future of the Democratic Party. Ocasio-Cortez tweeted:
"Anything is possible: today was the day a group of dedicated, everyday New Yorkers & their neighbors defeated Amazon's corporate greed, its worker exploitation, and the power of the richest man in the world."Warren tweeted
"How long will we allow giant corporations to hold our democracy hostage?"
Amazon was promised up to $1.5 billion in tax abatements in exchange for the promise of creating 25,000 jobs averaging $150,000 per year. Ocasio-Cortez believes a tax abatement is a bucket of cash the government can spend on subways or teachers. Warren called the tax incentives "bribes."CNN claimed
"Democrats and party leaders have not exactly kept pace with all, or maybe even most, of their constituents in urban areas, where jobs are plentiful -- but fewer and fewer people feel they're able to get ahead.
It was a campaign of younger politicians and activists who sent the Internet giant packing, and the lesson may very well be that a new crop of progressives is hostile to the idea that government should be working with corporate America to make jobs."
