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.
