“We see AOC, from the time she’s been elected, she’s put out policies like the job-killing Green New Deal,” Scherie Murray told Sean Hannity on Fox News. “She then went on to kill the Amazon deal in New York, which would’ve put some 25,000 jobs in Queens.”
New York’s 14th Congressional district — which includes the eastern Bronx and the northern part of Queens — has local issues that need the attention of a federal representative, Murray claimed.
“Our subway is crumbling. Our roads are in need of repair,” she said. “We need to really tackle our education system.”
In February the Job Creators Network launched a campaign against Rep. Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) showcasing the consequences of the Amazon pullout for New Yorkers.
“Facts are facts: while the Job Creators Network did spend some money highlighting the economic consequences of the Amazon pullout, Ocasio-Cortez deprived New York of 25,000 new jobs and $4 billion in annual wages,” said Alfredo Ortiz, Job Creators Network President and CEO to Fox News.
