WATCH: Shark Tank’s ‘Mr. Wonderful’ Kevin O’Leary SLAMS AOC For Killing Jobs All Over America – ‘She Kills Jobs by the Thousands’

Mar 3, 2023 | Political News

On Friday, investor, businessman, and ‘Shark Tank' host Kevin O'Leary told ‘CNN This Morning' that the policies of liberals like Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) are killing jobs all across America.
“I don’t put companies here in New York anymore or Massachusetts or in New Jersey or in California. Those states are uninvestable. The policy there is insane. The taxes are too high. We put them in Fargo, North Dakota, because 40 percent of the people work elsewhere, including Boston,” O’Leary said.

Then O'Leary recounted an occasion in which he spoke to radical leftist Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), saying, “‘Look, senator, we’ve got to move the companies out of your state because you are not investable anymore. You are punishing people if they are successful, you overtax them, you hit them with a super tax. New Jersey, what a mess! New York, uninvestable.”

When asked by anchor Poppy Harlow what makes New York uninvestable, O'Leary replied, “the regulatory environment is punitive. I had a project in upstate New York behind the grid in Niagara Falls for electricity, a global data center we were building. Eventually, it got so bad with the politicians in the local region and the state policy we moved it to Norway and all the jobs. Norway has it now. Thousands of jobs coming out of that. That is why New York is uninvestable. Sorry. Don’t shoot the messenger. I’m just telling you the way it is.”


He added, “AOC, she’s great at killing jobs. She kills jobs by the thousands. You know another … problem, where did Amazon take their jobs? They took them away from her. She threatened to sue them if they created jobs. I mean, this is a reality, a reality.”

When Harlow once again pushed back, saying there was more nuance to the Amazon situation, O'Leary replied, “Sorry. I’m just telling you the truth.”

O'Leary is exactly right. Woke politicians like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Elizabeth Warren are the exact opposite of what the American economy needs right now. Truly, they went woke, and if they have their way, America could very well go broke.
