Ocasio-Cortez Tries To Defend Herself From 'Wack' Billboard. She Failed

“THANKS FOR NOTHING AOC” Billboard Lights Up Times Square

The billboard was paid for by a group called Job Creators USA, and it blamed the upstart congresswoman for losing 25,000 jobs, $4 billion in wages, and $12 billion in "lost economic activity for NY".

Job Creators Network, a nonpartisan organization whose mission is to empower small business leaders in America, announced Wednesday its plans for a Times Square billboard reading "THANKS FOR NOTHING AOC".

"If we were willing to give away $3 billion for this deal, we could invest those $3 billion in our district ourselves, if we wanted to", Ocasio-Cortez said last week.

Macron calls on french society to draw 'new red lines' against anti-Semitism
During World War II, the French Vichy government collaborated with Germany notably in the deportation of Jews to death camps. The number of anti-Jewish crimes rose 74 percent a year ago .

Ocasio-Cortez said that economic disaster that she caused was "incredible", and she thought, incorrectly, that the $3 billion in tax breaks that were going to go to Amazon still existed after Amazon pulled out of NYC.

Responding to a tweet from conservative TV and radio host Laura Ingraham, who was promoting the billboard, 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". [The] fact that it's in Times Sq [uare] tells you this isn't for/by [New Yorkers]. We can fix our subways.

The new Democrat darling, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, is under attack in her home state as Amazon's planned headquarters was quelled and a new billboard Times Square attacks AOC for the move.

One woman has died and almost two dozen people have reportedly fallen ill after dining at a Michelin-starred restaurant in Spain. The restaurant is now closed while public health officials investigate the exact cause of the outbreak .

Amazon had cited the opposition of "a number of state and local politicians" in its decision to abandon the plans.

Congresswoman Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez is facing ethics questions after being accused of secretly using PAC money to fund her campaign.

In another tweet, she mocked the group responsible for the billboard by comparing it to comments made by Steve Carell's character on the television show "The Office" during a trip to the Big Apple. Not a bad take for a girl working the New York City grind.
