Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-N.Y.) own mother fled New York City to escape the sky-high taxes that her daughter supports.
Blanca Ocasio-Cortez told the Daily Mail that she left NYC for Florida over property taxes — and she doesn’t regret trying to keep more of her own money.
“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,” the mother told the outlet.
Blanca Ocasio-Cortez reportedly moved to Eustis, a Florida town north of Orlando with a population of less than 20,000.
“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,” the New York Post reported.
Meanwhile, her daughter is advocating for tax rates as high as 70 percent for Americans who earn more than $10 million a year. There is no tax too high for AOC.
She is also pushing for the so-called “Green New Deal” to do away with fossil fuels, eliminate air travel, and regulate cow farts.
The Green New Deal comes with an estimated price tag of almost $100 trillion. Of course, AOC has never offered an explanation on how America could possibly pay for such an expensive government program.
She once replied the government could “just pay for it” when asked how to pay for universal health care for everyone in America.
Good luck with that.
