“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.
