Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez blasts critics who claim she didn’t understand Amazon deal

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went on a Twitter tear accusing people of undermining her intelligence over statements she made about Amazon’s failed move to the Big Apple.

“Frankly, the knee-jerk reaction assuming that I ‘don’t understand’ how tax giveaways to corps work is disappointing,” the progressive darling wrote Tuesday.

The youngest member of Congress came under fire when she argued last week that the close to $3 billion in tax breaks and subsidies the city and state offered Amazon to build a headquarters in Long Island City could have been better spent on hiring teachers or fixing the subways.

In a five-tweet rant, Ocasio-Cortez lashed out at people who pointed out that $2.5 billion of the $3 billion represented future tax breaks — not a large pile of cash that could now be spent elsewhere.

"accusing people of undermining her intelligence over statements she made about Amazon’s failed move to the Big Apple."
