This makes me so, so sad … “There is a double standard for Puerto Ricans.” … I think I ‘knew in my heart’ about this … aside from this blog’s postings. ” Why no help for Puerto Rico? A very cynical reason …. “If Puerto Rico fails, this forces more Puerto Ricans to move to Florida – and to New York, North Carolina, Arizona, Texas – where they become Democratic voters in the 2016 presidential election.” Yet, I can’t fathom a Trump presidency!!
“Hillary Clinton, Pres. Obama, and his Democratic administration pushed Puerto Rico into financial insolvency. They refused to offer any bankruptcy relief, Jones Act reform, Treasury Dept. solutions, or executive orders of any sort. They lobbied for the PROMESA legislation and a Financial Control Board.” Sadness ….
I do not support Donald Trump.
I am a Democrat, but I will probably vote for Jill Stein, and the reason is this…
Hillary Clinton – and the entire Democratic Party – are taking Puerto Ricans for suckers in the 2016 presidential election.
Clinton took massive campaign contributions from hedge funds that own the “public debt” of Puerto Rico. She lobbied for the PROMESA bill. She perpetuated the conditions that forced hundreds of thousands of Puerto Ricans to move to Florida.
And now…those same Puerto Ricans will vote “Democrat” in November.
They will swing Florida for Clinton.
This critical Puerto Rican vote, could put Clinton in the White House.
A BITTER PILL TO SWALLOW
This is a painful irony.
It is further evidence, of the perverse position of Puerto Ricans in US society…a position which forces us to reward people, for kicking us in the teeth.
Hillary Clinton, Pres. Obama…
