Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez's Mom Moved to Florida to Escape NY Taxes
A reminder, despite her lies, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez isn't a girl from the Bronx. She's an architect's daughter from Westchester. And it makes perfect sense that her mother would be looking for a place with lower property taxes than New York.
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.
You can't blame her. A lot of New Yorkers are doing the same thing. So are some Californians.
It's one reason Florida's population is growing, while millennials are fleeing New York.
The problem is that there's no actual accountability. And no sense that electing socialists will destroy the very safe havens that they are trying to escape.
