AMERICAN CITIZENS IN LIMBO

theSKIMM’S GUIDE TO THE PUERTO RICO DEBT CRISIS
THE STORY

Puerto Rico’s in trouble

The island’s got $72 billion in debt that its governor says is “not payable.”

So that’s …. great.

COUGH, I KNOW PUERTO RICO’S NOT A US STATE, COUGH

Nope, not a state. It’s a commonwealth that the US said ‘mine’ to in the late 1800’s. Which means Puerto Rico is like a college kid — kinda independent, kinda not. Puerto Ricans don’t pay certain federal taxes, and they can’t vote in US presidential elections. But they are US citizens, they use the US dollar, and they can join the US army.

SO HOW DID ITS PROBLEMS START?

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”

  1. A Puerto Rico le hubiera ido mucho mejor como país independiente o como estado miembro de los EEUU o cualquier otro país. El gobierno puertorriqueño ha cometido muchos errores, sí. Pero gran parte de la responsabilidad la tiene el gobierno americano por su política fiscal hacia la isla. Una política que, por cierto, los puertorriqueños jamas tuvieron la oportunidad de avalar. EEUU nunca ha otorgado total libertad a la isla, y al misma tiempo la ha ignorado.
