Hey, do you remember that red-and-white “Tax the Rich” dress that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) wore to the Met Gala last year? It was a pretty nice dress. She wore it well. Maybe I’m just mad that I can’t date her, but I kind of feel like AOC should actually read what was on that dress and then put it into practice. The State of New York has had a tax warrant out for AOC for unpaid corporate taxes for the past five years. And guess what? Little miss “Tax the Rich” continues to refuse to pay her own taxes.
Back in 2017, New York filed a tax warrant against AOC because she hadn’t paid her corporate taxes on a children-oriented publishing company she founded. The company was called Brook Avenue Press. What did they publish? I have no idea. Probably some transgender stuff aimed at four-year-olds, knowing how Democrats act toward kids these days. (Bunch of groomers.)
The first tax warrant against her was for $1,618 in unpaid corporate taxes. If someone doesn’t resolve a tax warrant in a “timely” fashion in New York, they start slapping steep fines on top of the amount owed. In the five years that AOC has been dodging her own tax bill, the amount has climbed by 52% to $2,461.
AOC makes $174,000 a year from her congressional salary. We know from public filings that after five years, she has a net worth of $500,000. She’s living frugally for a Member of Congress, which is commendable. So, why doesn’t she pay her damn taxes?
We all know the answer, of course. Democrats do not want to live by the same rules that they impose on everyone else, and they know they don’t have to live by the same rules. AOC knows she can dodge that tax warrant for the rest of her life, and no one in the New York state government will ever bother her about it.
How many years do you think you could get away with not paying an unpaid tax bill? I’ll bet it wouldn’t be five years for most of us. But AOC has that special “Democrat privilege” that the media never seems to want to talk about.
The state of New York filed the tax warrant against her just two months after Barack Obama launched AOC’s first House run. For those who don’t remember, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was literally an actress who auditioned for the role of “Congresswoman” with Barack Obama’s super PAC. She landed the role, obviously.
For all the complaints from the right about how AOC is a socialist, and all the media platitudes about how she’s the “future” of the Democrat Party, she’s really none of that. She’s never had an original thought in her life. What she really is, is Barack Obama’s mouthpiece in the House of Representatives. Whenever she speaks, she’s spewing Barry’s talking points. She’s reciting lines. There are perks that come with the job of being Obama’s mouthpiece, and one of those perks is obviously never having to pay your outstanding tax warrants.
AOC initially vowed to pay the outstanding bill back in 2017. But then her office issued a statement that the warrant was issued “in error,” so she was refusing to pay it. Now her office claims that they’re disputing the tax warrant.
Last year, after AOC had dodged paying her fair share of taxes for four years, her spokeswoman (spokes-birthing-person?) told the New York Post, “As anyone who’s tried to contest a tax bill in error knows, it takes time.”
Sure, it does! Everybody knows that!
But in the meantime, have you ever heard of a state revenue agency waiting more than five years to NOT take action to collect owed back taxes? It’s not like AOC’s net worth is unknown. She could pay the tax bill immediately and would never miss the $2,400 for the amount of time that it takes to blink. She’s not paying the bill because she knows she’ll never be thrown in jail. She’s protected and shielded as Barack Obama’s mouthpiece.
Just remember the next time that AOC starts spouting off about how “the rich” need to “pay their fair share of taxes,” she is one of the rich. And she doesn’t pay her taxes.
