De Blasio Explains Amazon Tax Break to AOC

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio suggested on Sunday that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) shouldn’t be celebrating a failed deal for an Amazon headquarters in Queens.

De Blasio and Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo had argued that the $2.8 billion in tax breaks offered to Amazon would bring in $27 billion in tax revenue.

De Blasio told Chuck Todd of NBC News’ Meet the Press the “$3 billion that would go back in tax incentives was only after we were getting the jobs and getting the revenue.”
