Oc-Co Loco tried to score political points for socialism with no intention to kill off thousands of jobs. But she didn't anticipate other socialists joining the fight and creating a political firestorm against Amazon. Well, they killed the deal, and she helped kill 25,000 jobs that her voters wanted.The jobs were already coming, so why not take the opportunity to stick your finger in the eye of the big, mean, nasty corporation? Today, all that changed. She fished what she wished and Amazon decided not to bring tens of thousands of jobs to New York City after all. Today, her effective opposition to the deal is a much different story, one in which she has to defend creating less opportunity for working New Yorkers.
Even Governor Cuomo of NY is blaming her.
This is why I always say that LIBs are the undisputed Champions of Unintended Consequences.
