New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio suggested on Sunday that critics of the potential Amazon campus New York City - such as Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez - got the facts wrong over the money behind the tax breaks.
On Sunday morning, de Blasio responded in the affirmative when Chuck Todd of NBC News' "Meet the Press" asked if the tax breaks offered to Amazon weren't "money you had over here. And it was going over there." The Democratic mayor said: "And that $3 billion that would go back in tax incentives was only after we were getting the jobs and getting the revenue."
