Washington, D.C. (February 21, 2019) — In response to criticism from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez via Twitter on Wednesday and Thursday, the Job Creators Network erected two new billboards at the prominent intersection of 7th Avenue and 42nd Street in Times Square.
Ocasio-Cortez called attention to the original ad boiling down the situation to “billionaire-funded groups blowing tons of cash on wack billboards.” The new billboards constructed today by the Job Creators Network poke fun at the tweet, as well as put it into context.
The first billboard states “Hey AOC, Saw your wack tweet.” The second ad, located just below the first, goes on to call attention to the fact that although the billboard costs about $4 thousand, Ocasio-Cortez’s actions contributed to the loss of $4 billion in annual wages 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, JCN President and CEO. “She can call us out all she wants about how we spend our money, but it’s clear that most people care more about how she spends theirs.”
