AOC’s mom glad she ditched New York for lower-tax Florida

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.

Blanca said living in the Yorktown Heights area of New York was growing too expensive. After her husband Sergio’s death, Blanca said that she was at risk of foreclosing on the house on two occasions. However, she finally struck an arrangement with the bank and avoided an eviction.

“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.”

She decided on Eustis because she had a relative in the area and purchased an 860-square-foot home for $87,000 in 2016.

EXCLUSIVE: 'God played quite a joke on me with this politics stuff!' The privacy-loving mother of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez whips up lasagna as she tells how she had to flee New York because of high taxes and gushes about wedding bells for her daughter

    U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's mother Blanca Ocasio-Cortez has spoken exclusively to DailyMail.com about her Democrat star daughter
    Blanca Ocasio-Cortez – BOC – is still settling down in Eustis, Florida, a small city in the far suburbs of Orlando with her mother Clotilde, 78, and a rescue dog
    She said: 'After my husband died the family went through tough times. I was cleaning houses in the morning and working as a secretary in the afternoon'
    'We moved from The Bronx to Yorktown Heights, but it was difficult making ends meet. I was skipping mortgage payments and we almost lost the house twice'
    Early on, AOC didn't show signs she'd get into politics - except that she talked incessantly and itched to show off her brains, her mother said 
    'She wasn't raised to be a socialist,' Mrs. Ocasio-Cortez said. 'That's not how Puerto Ricans are. She's a democratic socialist, and it's very different'
    Blanca was particularly put off by the controversy surrounding AOC's move into  D.C. high-rise, saying 'that building isn't even that expensive by D.C. and New York standards'
    The mother-of-two said her new Trump-supporting Florida neighbors don't know she is AOC's mother, saying she doesn't like the limelight for her family

How can you show off something you don't have?
In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act.
�More than any other time in history, mankind faces a crossroads. One path leads to despair and utter hopelessness. The other, to total extinction. Let us pray we have the wisdom to choose correctly.�-Woody Allen
If God invented marathons to keep people from doing anything more stupid, the triathlon must have taken him completely by surprise.

Her name is Ocasio-Cortez too?  That's odd.

Maybe it is some Puerto Rican thing.

Kinda like the difference between a socialist and a democratic socialist.

I don't think so.  As far as I know, Puerto Ricans use the same naming convention.  And, unless they both have the same father and mother, they don't have the same name.

How can you show off something you don't have?

AOC is still talking incessantly, but as for having brains? Nope.
Principles matter. Words matter.
