Job Creators Network, a nonpartisan organization whose mission is to empower small business leaders in America, announced Wednesday its plans for a Times Square billboard reading “THANKS FOR NOTHING AOC.”

The billboard references Democrat New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s latest battle with Amazon, which forced the company to pull out from its plans to move business into New York.



Ocasio-Cortez reacted to the news on Twitter late Wednesday by criticizing the wealthy. “Billionaires paying to put up anti-progressive propaganda in Times Square is like the obscenely rich version of the scene where Michael Scott points to the Bubba Gump,”  she said.

“This is it, this is the heart of civilization, right here,” added the socialist leaning Ocasio-Cortez.



Ocasio-Cortez criticized JCN’s leadership.

“Few things effectively communicate the power we’ve built in fighting dark money & anti-worker policies like billionaire-funded groups blowing tons of cash on wack billboards (this one is funded by the Mercers),” she tweeted.

The billboard, however, is a direct response to Ocasio-Cortez’s role in scrapping plans to open a new Amazon headquarters in the heart of New York City.



“The retreat will not only cost the area $12 billion in economic activity, but 25,000 new jobs that would have paid an average salary of $150,000,” according to JCN. Clearly Amazon’s multi billion dollar investment would’ve only benefitted American workers.

“The Amazon pullout is a perfect example of what we’ve been saying: socialism takes and capitalism creates,” said Alfredo Ortiz, JCN President and CEO.

Ocasio-Cortez is completely open about her socialist agenda. The Green New Deal is Ocasio-Cortez’s latest effort to over regulate American business. The bill seeks to implement sweeping legislation with an end goal of stopping 100 percent of human impact on climate change.



The billboard will be on display for the next week and passersby who stroll between 42nd Street near 8th Avenue will get a chance to see it.
