Has anyone else done their taxes yet? The forms for this year are now finalized. I made 25% less money last year... but my effective total tax percentage went up. Used TurboTax.

Enjoy your evening, little buddy!

Called me out on what?
You basically said ‘I don’t have facts because it’s not my job’ and ran away

Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez played a key role in helping kill Amazon's New York aspirations. Her campaign spent $12,000 at the online retailer.

Democratic darling Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez celebrated the demise of Amazon’s plan to build a second headquarters in New York City.

But what’s a politician if not a raging hypocrite?

During the self-proclaimed democratic socialist’s congressional campaign last year, she spent a whopping $12,000 on Amazon, including $400 on chalk, the New York Daily News reports.

AOC — as she’s known among fans — also played a key role in the e-commerce giant pulling out of the planned Big Apple headquarters.

According to some proponents, that cost New York $4 billion in lost wages, 25,000 in lost jobs and another $12 billion in “lost economic activity”.

Why don’t you take your 25,000 jobs and go somewhere else? AOC also took a slap at Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.

“Today was the day a group of dedicated, everyday New Yorkers and their neighbours defeated Amazon’s corporate greed, its worker exploitation, and the power of the richest man in the world,” she tweeted as the deal sank.

AOC and other opponents were furious that the city and state used $ billion in tax incentives to get Amazon to open in Gotham.

They also took exception to Amazon’s perceived anti-union reputation.

But none of that mattered during the election.

According to the News, Federal Election Commission finance records show Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign used Amazon’s services at least 68 times between April and October.

Most of the charges listed were for “supplies.”

One conservative group has voiced their displeasure with the neophyte congresswoman in a Times Square billboard.

It reads: “Thanks For Nothing, AOC!”

Her office did not return calls to the Daily News.
Hmm... A mere $12K from a little girl named AOC was able to defeat a $1Tril market cap corporation. This movie sounds familiar.

This article made it seem like Amazon blames a number of state and local officials, not anyone in federal office...

If I recall, wasn't she the one who said she couldn't move to DC because she couldn't afford it?

Has anyone else lost their job yet? The unemployment benefit forms for this year have run out. I made no money last year... but my take home should improve soon when universal income kicks in...
