A billboard went up in Times Square on Wednesday blaming Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for Amazon's canceling its HQ2 project in Queens, New York, last week.




The billboard said that the termination of Amazon's deal with New York lost 25,000 jobs and $4 billion in wages.




The sign was funded by the Job Creators' Network, a conservative business advocacy group.




Ocasio-Cortez responded by saying that it was paid for by "billionaire-funded groups" advocating "dark money & anti-worker policies."



New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez lashed out at a billboard in Times Square that blamed her for the termination of a deal between the city of New York and Amazon that would have parked its second headquarters, known as HQ2, in Queens.
Amazon backed out of the deal to develop HQ2 last Thursday. The gist of the plan was that Amazon would get $3 billion in tax credits, which it would receive over ten years, and in return create 25,000 jobs in a new headquarters.
