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.

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.

trytothinktrytothink 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
