"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", Ocasio-Cortez wrote early this morning to her 3.2 million followers on Twitter. "AOC cost New Yorkers 25,000 jobs and $4 billion in annual wages", Job Creators Network CEO and President Alfredo Ortiz said in the statement. "Thanks for nothing, AOC!", the billboard at 42nd Street and 8th Avenue says.

In her tweets, Ocasio-Cortez also made sure to point out that Times Square is the worst. The billboard, which provides a link to the website ThanksAOC.com, is expected to remain in the busy tourist spot for one week.

"A small group of politicians put their own narrow political interests above their community - which poll after poll showed overwhelmingly supported bringing Amazon to Long Island City - the state's economic future and the best interests of the people of this state", Cuomo said. Amazon had planned to build a campus in Queens that was expected to create jobs for around 25,000 people, while receiving up to $3 billion in tax breaks and subsidies. We competed in and won the most hotly contested national economic development competition in the United States, resulting in at least 25,000-40,000 good paying jobs for our state and almost $30 billion dollars in new revenue to fund transit improvements, new housing, schools and countless other quality of life improvements. Protests against Amazon popped up in opposition to the deal.

The multi-billion dollar company cited local opposition as their reason for pulling out of the project.
