AOC’s OWN MOTHER LEAVING New York saying ‘Daughter wasn’t raised to be a socialist’
Wow. So we really aren’t in the wrong if AOC’s own mother had to leave New York because of high taxes. It’s good to see Democrats waking up to the reality and horror of socialism.
Just take a look at Venezuela, seriously. Nothing is more accurate about socialism than seeing starving citizens eat from the backs of garbage trucks.
And yes, even AOC’s own mom doesn’t believe her drivel. She’d rather live in sunny low-tax Republican ruled Florida. Hey, I don’t blame her.
According to Daily Wire, AOC’s mother said: “I lived in the New York area for most of my life but I started being unable to afford it,” she continued. “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 insisted that her daughter was not a socialist, stressing what she claims is a clear distinction between being socialist and being a democratic socialist, as her daughter styles herself.
“She wasn’t raised to be a socialist,” Blanca said. “That’s not how Puerto Ricans are. That’s not what we do. Socialists are in Cuba or Venezuela.”
“She’s a democratic socialist, and it’s very different,” Blanca added.”
“The mother of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is boasting about fleeing New York to live in Florida to take advantage of the state’s lower taxes.
“I was paying $10,000 a year in real estate taxes up north,” Blanca Ocasio-Cortez told the Daily Mail on Monday. “I’m paying $600 a year in Florida. It’s stress-free down here.”
Blanca moved from New York to Eustis, Florida, before her daughter announced her candidacy against then-incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY) in the 2018 Democratic Primary, where she pulled off an upset victory over Crowley.
She settled in Eustis near a relative in the area in 2016, purchasing an 860-square-foot home for $87,000.
“I was cleaning houses in the morning and working as a secretary at a hospital in the afternoon. I was working from 6 a.m. until 11 p.m.,” she said. “And I prayed and prayed, and things worked out. After the children graduated from college, I figured it was time for me to move to Florida.”
Blanca also spoke about other media reports regarding her daughter’s living situation, including one report on her daughter’s digs in a luxury D.C. apartment complex with no affordable housing units like the ones she advocated for in her congressional campaign.
“By the way, that building isn’t even that expensive by D.C., and New York standards,” Blanca Ocasio-Cortez said of her daughter’s unit. “She needs some privacy and security.”
Washington Examiner also reported that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s, D-N.Y., mother doesn’t regret moving from New York to Florida in part due to the lower real estate taxes.
“I was paying $10,000 a year in real estate taxes up north,” Blanca Ocasio-Cortez told the Daily Mail. “I’m paying $600 a year in Florida. It’s stress-free down here.”
Blanca moved to Eustis, Fla., just before her daughter entered the 2018 Democratic primary race against then-Rep. Joe Crowley in a Bronx- and Queens, N.Y.-based district, a contest she won in one of the biggest upsets in recent political history.
