(AbsoluteNews.com) – You might think a lawmaker who wants other people to pay more in taxes would pay her own. Apparently, that’s too much to ask. At least it is when that legislator is Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).
In 2012, AOC founded Brook Avenue Press. The company didn’t last long and in 2016, New York state closed the business. A year later, in 2017, the state’s tax department filed a warrant against Ocasio-Cortez for a $1,618.36 tax bill she never paid. Because only rich people should pay their fair share, right?
Now, three years later, the Democratic lawmaker still has not paid her bill. Of course, when you don’t pay your taxes, they incur fees and penalties…this is no different and AOC now owes $2,088.78. The New York Post checked and found the tax bill is just sitting there incurring more interest charges while the progressive AOC rails against corporations and hard workers.
@AOC You would think the person in congress wanting to redistribute tax dollars the most… would pay her own tax bill in a timely manner. 7 years unpaid? Sends quite a message of "do what I say.. not what I do."

Lauren Hitt, a spokeswoman for the congresswoman, says it’s all a big mistake and AOC doesn’t owe the money. The lawmaker is disputing it.
Imagine the moxie it takes to tell people they should be paying more but then refusing to pay what she, herself, owes. “Do as I say, not as I do.” The hypocrisy is astounding but totally unsurprising.
You Deserve the Absolute Truth!
