  1. Socialist Democrat Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hard at work after proposing the New Green Deal to eliminate cars and planes in 10 years:

    Amazon pulls out of plan to build New York City headquarters after backlash from lawmakers, notably Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who bemoaned the project.

    Earlier this month, reports surfaced that Amazon was reconsidering its plans for its New York office, which led to cheers from Ocasio-Cortez. “Can everyday people come together and effectively organize against creeping overreach of one of the world’s biggest corporations? Yes, they can,” the freshman lawmaker tweeted.

    In addition to the 25,000 jobs, Amazon would’ve brought $2.5 billion in Amazon investment and eventually 8 million square feet of office space to Long Island City as part of its investment announced last November. The Seattle-based company said it would have generated “incremental tax revenue of more than $10 billion over the next 20 years as a result of Amazon’s investment and job creation.”

    • Youngster Horse Teeth is celebrating biting Jeff Bezos square on his backside today. She barked, a thousand mindless suck-ups fawned and marched and New York lost $27 billion and 25,000 jobs. She is a socialist hero.

  2. Strict ID Laws Don’t Stop Voters: Evidence from a U.S. Nationwide Panel, 2008-2016

    NBER Working Paper No. 25522
    Issued in February 2019
    NBER Program(s):Political Economy

    U.S. states increasingly require identification to vote – an ostensive attempt to deter fraud that prompts complaints of selective disenfranchisement. Using a difference-in-differences design on a 1.3-billion-observations panel, we find the laws have no negative effect on registration or turnout, overall or for any group defined by race, gender, age, or party affiliation. These results hold through a large number of specifications and cannot be attributed to mobilization against the laws, measured by campaign contributions and self-reported political engagement. ID requirements have no effect on fraud either – actual or perceived. Overall, our results suggest that efforts to reform voter ID laws may not have much impact on elections.
