AOC’s mom moved to Florida to escape NYC’s high property taxes…

I’ve been avoiding this story all day…because it’s another AOC story and I know you guys get tired of seeing her so much. #metoo

But this one is a little different because it’s about her mother moving to Florida to escape the high taxes of New York state:

NY POST – The mother of soak-the-rich congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said that she was forced to flee the Big Apple and move to Florida because the property taxes were so high.

“I was paying $10,000 a year in real estate taxes up north. I’m paying $600 a year in Florida. It’s stress-free down here,” Blanca Ocasio-Cortez told the Daily Mail from her home in Eustis, a town of less than 20,000 in central Florida north of Orlando.

The mother-of-two — who calls herself BOC — said she picked Eustis because a relative already lived there and right before Christmas 2016 she paid $87,000 for an 860-square-foot home on a quiet street that dead-ends at a cemetery.

A New York Times reporter that you’ve probably heard of, Maggie Haberman, tried to spin her AOC’s mom moving to Florida as a hit against Trump. But as Kerpen points out, that was before Trump’s time:

It is ironic that AOC’s own mother moved from a liberal to a republican state because of the burden of high taxes. You’d think there’d be a lesson in that for AOC about taxes and freedom.

But AOC is hellbent on turning America into Venezuela, so I guess she doesn’t learn lessons very well.

Go ahead and use this as an open thread if you like. I’m gonna go watch some no-prep street racing.

  1. Idealogy beats brains! Looks like, mother didn’t do a very good job in teaching child some common sense!

  2. Wait wait wait… she owns private property!?


    1. Limbaugh never asked for tax increases. This ladies daughter wants to create the conditions that forced her own mother to move.

  3. Sounds like her mother isn’t a true believer, and must be re-educated to understand and love the benefits of Socialism. I’m sure AOC will be pushing “Education” about the virtues of all things AOC very soon.

    1. AOC is indoctrinated, and was through the educational system we now have. It’s how she turned out to be such a fellow traveler.

  4. So another liberal has infected a (relatively) conservative area – where her liberal poison can spread it’s spores… Grrreeeaaat… Enjoy it while you have it Florida. Just like Washington state, you can lose it if not careful.

  5. “But AOC is hellbent on turning America into Venezuela, so I guess she doesn’t learn lessons very well.”

    It’s amazing that anyone listens to this bartender/barista at all. Sure, AOC is stupid – but just think of how dumb you have to be to look up to her for political advice on running the country.

    1. Maybe she did learn, but thinks that she’ll be one of the elites unaffected by the poverty at the bottom.

    1. Isn’t it just sickening how these jerks make places like New York so unpleasant and then they move themselves and their voting habits to places like Florida? Like they say, “You can take the idiot out of New York, but you can’t take the idiot out of the New Yorker”.

      Or at least I say that.

      1. @trytothink Yes it is, the town I grew up in since I was 10 has been destroyed by the dems from NY and NJ. They took over our local government , ruined our rivers and beaches and fishing. Now there is miles of condos on the beach with there barriers which they have no right to do not to mention our quaint little town where we all knew each other is now snow bird city, and the traffic is horrible !
        Gov. Ron DeSanits is putting a stop to those who have ruined our rivers as fast as he can, so thankful for him.

  6. Mama must have dropped her on her head when she was a baby. That would explain things. 😉

  7. The Hagfish has announced that she will not be running again in ’20. Oh, darn. I was hoping for one more humiliating defeat.

    1. It’s so good to know that the Democrats were watching for Trump’s 2016 loss to make sure that he conceded the election and didn’t try to do something lame like going on a lecture tour where he whined about his loss, made outrageous claims about losing because of voter irregularities, blamed everyone but himself for losing, etc.

        1. Now you’re “Noble Member”… wow. I haven’t even worked my way to trusted yet. I feel like a slacker.

                1. The good news is Scoop agreed to pay you three times what he pays me. The bad news is three
                  times zero is still zero.

  8. Thanks to the progressives; and educators; and the pot heads for electing the fool Evers as wisconsin governor. He is proposing giving Wisconsin Driver licenses to illegals.

    I am outraged.

  9. Problem is all these progressives that are fleeing these cities aren’t changing their ways, making states like mine more purple every year.

  10. NY is highly overrated. That being said, for certain businesses, it is also the right place to be. If one cannot leverage off that advantage, they are better off moving to a low tax state. If you are content with a simple life, then move to a small town in Florida and pay nothing in taxes. But if you want more spice and make enough to support that lifestyle, then NY or suburbs are not bad at all.

        1. Yeah, I get to the Buffalo area and it’s a huge manufacturing center. I get to Chicago quite a bit and there is all kinds of manufacturing, as well as new building. Most of the expansion is in the collar counties where taxes are lower.

  11. I have a hard time blaming Mom for what her communist idiot spawn believes. I’m dang near an anarchist, and at least a rabid libertarian, but my son is a pinko commie like AOC. Probably gave her money.

  12. My question is, if you moved to escape it, why do you continue to vote for it? Liberals are political cancer.

  13. Can’t blame her, I moved to Iowa for the very same reason. Rush Pimptrump moved from NY to Florida and pi$$ed them off so much by doing it publicly, they audited him for years afterwards. Of course, he probably had Snerdly or someone do it for him.

    1. Yes, but originally, he was from my podunk town of Sacratomato, of course we used to be Reagan Country too. Sobbing in remembrance of the good ol’ days :whew:

        1. @doc Yes, how some ever, the folks in Rio Linda….in his salad days will say they made him famously famous.

  14. Leftists are so shamelessly dishonest. I saw one leftist on TV trying to claim Trump added 7 trillion to debt already because of tax cut! lol.

  15. Mommy is not paying her fair share! I bet you commie-Cortez said, “Mom, its time to get out of here because I am going to raise everyones taxes through the roof…”

    1. @sheerpolitics I saw that, it was priceless! He also said telling children that the world will end in 12 years if we don’t sign on to the GND is child abuse – his very words.

      The Left is turning on it’s own most courageous pioneers like Moore and Martina Navratilova because they refuse to go over the cliff with this new breed of lunatics.

  16. Maybe AOC should have taken economics from BOC then maybe she wouldn’t be spewing Idiocy (IDOC).

    1. AOC seems to have gotten a PhD in spending other people’s campaign contributions on her personal stuff. Got to wonder where that $87,000 right before Christmas 2016 to pay for the house came from, Kram. The story in the DC Examiner today said she and her chief of staff set up LLC’s and started moving dark money between them in 2016, apparently to hide their use of the funds. If I’m reading right, the first $200K hit by the end of the year in 2016, and then an additional $845K was transferred between multiple LLC’s in 2017. That means Christmas 2016 would be interesting timing to pay for an $87,000 house.

      1. Just got through reading the article at the Daily Caller. Her fall may be as quick as her rise.

    1. I bet her mother taught her very well. Try to hold on to as much money as you can and find a way to spend other people’s money.

  17. I feel bad for Florida. The last thing they need is another “Damn Yankee” moving there.

  18. Who knew there’s an entire world outside of NYC, and you can purchase an ‘enormous’ (24 x 36) home for ‘only’ $87,000 and pay 16 times less on taxation…

    1. It’s a reality TV show called “Street Outlaws” on Discovery Channel. Clubs of grease monkey mechanics with some over the top muscle cars drag race on streets illegally for big bucks. The no prep part comes from they can’t treat the take off area like they do on sanctioned drag race tracks.

      1. @landscaper knows his stuff!

        I do like street outlaws but it’s gotten so bitter lately it’s just not as much fun.

        No prep is good though because it’s just racing without the drama.

    1. Don’t think she would anyway. She sounds like a pragmatic woman
      that realized a bad situation and took steps to start moving away from it.
      She fled what her daughter is glamorizing.

      1. IRDK. Mom raised her to be the person she is. Isn’t it said the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree?

    2. She’ll just vote for any D’s on the ticket in Fla. now. They way the Californicators do when they move to Texas and Colorado.

          1. Nurture or nature? Does dingbat have any other siblings or did she fall out of the nest too early and hit her head on the tree as she was falling. I’m not going to give her any slack. I know she is young, but in her case she’s indoctrinated, and very dangerous.

        1. Fun in the neighborhood when AOC visits Mom at the holidays like for Lenin and Castro’s birthdays. :chuckle:

    1. Christmas, Mother’s Day and her Mother’s birthday. But she’s iffy iffy
      on the Birthday call next year, she’s just going to text her a generic
      “Happy Birthday” email.

      1. @nygino wow, you’re much more generous than I would have given her. I would place a bet that her mother calls her on her birthday but she doesn’t pick up. :chuckle:

      2. At some point if so many libs continue leave NY won’t the stay come in play for republicans?
