25,000 jobs kaput! New York’s progressives bemoan the high cost of wokeness

From Mary Chastain at Legal Insurrection:

Now Amazon, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, Gov. Chris Cuomo, and others have ripped into Ocasio-Cortez not only for her behavior to push out Amazon, but how she is cheering loudly over the decision. An Amazon spokesperson said the congresswoman and other lawmakers “made it a hostile environment to do business.” …

Panelist Donny Deutsch explained that this behavior puts us “in a dangerous place” and if Democrats “don’t start to speak up against people like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who is young and dynamic but does not know what she’s talking about, they’re going to hand the presidency back to Donald Trump.” More.

Reality check: The fundamental question is whether New Yorkers would rather have jobs and investments or welfare and outrage. Ocasio-Cortez is so visible a symbol of the choice that just watching what happens to her career will answer a lot of questions about the future.
