A hero for Puerto Rico: Congressman Luis Gutierrez

“The U.S. Congress is holding hearings this week …. ” …. We all need to be aware of what goes on!!
Financial Control Board? Nooooo ….
“A gladiator stepped into the arena. Congressman Luis Gutierrez took the microphone and blew everyone away.”


The U.S. Congress is holding hearings this week, that will determine the future of Puerto Rico. Will it go bankrupt? Will the U.S. offer any help? Will a Financial Control Board take over the entire government, and create a new dictatorship in the Caribbean?

A gladiator stepped into the arena. Congressman Luis Gutierrez took the microphone and blew everyone away. His words cut through the entire hearing room – so sharply you could hear a pin drop. You can see his testimony right here:

Rep. Gutierrez spoke from 1:29:45 till 135:30, just under six minutes…but those six minutes cut through a century of congressional ignorance and hypocrisy. Gutierrez made it clear that Puerto Rico is a U.S. colony, and that the U.S. government bears great responsibility for the economic chaos on the island.

He talked about the Jones Act, economic development…and jobs, jobs, jobs.

Other voices were heard that day.

About Dr. Rex

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!
