Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez declared victory after Amazon canceled plans to expand in New York, and Sarah Silverman’s fully on board with sticking it to billionaires by telling them to shove their several thousand jobs where the sun don’t shine:

So if there were no billionaires everybody else would save money? We’re a little confused. But not everybody sees it the way Silverman and AOC do.
Briliant, y'all 'saved' NY from giving Amazon a 3 billion dollar tax break on a 25 billion dollar increase to the city's tax coffers. Heckuva job.

lol it took me 2.5 hours to get the gov’t to create 2 pieces of paper for me at the DMV. @amazon can deliver most things in the world to my doorstep in less than 48 hours. Think we have very different “cost” equations.

Amazon wanted to pay New York $27 billion in taxes and bring 25k jobs to my home community in LIC. She thought that was a bad idea, but now wants the government to guarantee everyone a job…got it. #makeamericasmartagain

By the way, some of Silverman’s books and videos are available for purchase on Amazon, so that particular billionaire isn’t necessarily costing her any money.
