Former Speaker of the NYC Council Melissa Mark Viverito explains why Amazon's plans to build a new headquarters in Long Island City, Queens, New York is bad for the city. New York politicians are planning to give Amazon a $3 billion tax break. Viverito argues that the state needs to give Amazon tax breaks or we'll miss out on a huge opportunity.

'Amazon is a has been valued at $1 trillion. What New York City needs is a subway system that works. What we need is safe public housing with walls that aren't filled with lead. What we need are fully funded public schools and a strong public university system that everyone can afford.'

'We need leaders who don't take our hard-earned tax dollars and spend them on giveaways to billionaire companies.'
