In his latest "My Take" commentary for Fox Nation, Stuart Varney said Democrats are "learning the downside of A.O.C." after Amazon announced it would not move to Long Island City, N.Y. as planned.

“Anything is possible: today was the day a group of dedicated, everyday New Yorkers & their neighbors defeated Amazon’s corporate greed, its worker exploitation, and the power of the richest man in the world,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.

The freshman Democrat – along with other lawmakers – had strongly criticized the planned opening of Amazon’s second headquarters in New York.

Varney said the "Big Apple" is turning into "a big socialist mess."

He ripped Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), who represents the adjacent neighborhood of Astoria, Queens, for claiming Amazon was "exploiting workers."

Varney said Amazon was offering jobs that paid around $150,000 per year, which he stated was far from an exploitation.

"Democrats are now learning the downside of A.O.C. (sic)," he said, adding that the lawmaker and her similar-minded colleagues "hate capitalism [and] wealth."

Varney said New York State is "desperate" for tax revenue after President Trump's tax law lessened the amount of state income tax that citizens of high-tax states can write off to the federal government.

"People and money are fleeing the state," he said.

"When you make a star of socialism, you and America lose," Varney added.
