Jennifer Lopez…speak out on the Jones Act!

Please stand up … speak against the ‘Jones Act’ … dobsway eith this archaic act!! #HelpPuertoRico …


Last week, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony gave a free concertfor Hillary Clinton. They filled the Bayfront Park Amphitheater in Miami, and helped Hillary to win the key Florida vote.

Lin-Manuel Miranda has held Hamilton-themed events in support of Hillary.

But Jennifer and Lin-Manuel need to put their star power behind something that really matters in Puerto Rico…getting rid of the Jones Act.


The Jones Act forces Puerto Ricans to pay 15-20% more for everything they consume: food, clothing, cars, gasoline and electricity. A car costs $6,000 more in Puerto Rico than it does in Miami. Without the Jones Act, the “public debt” of Puerto Rico would not even exist.

But the US public doesn’t pay much attention to the crisis in Puerto Rico. They follow the movement of J.Lo’s body, and the soap opera of her love life. Accordingly, J.Lo is in a…

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!!!

  1. Dear Horty,

    When Hillary Clinton wins in Florida, it will be due in large part to a 100% increase in Hispanic voting in 2016 v 2012. This makes this community of Puerto Ricans, a power house. This is the time to make demands like the repeal of the Jones Act.

    • Agree! It depends who Puerto Rico sends up here. The Resident Commissioner is a political post, elected on Nov 8 … he’s a PR representative but has no vote. He sits and listens and may say his point … but has no power. Will that change? I wonder …

      • Dear Horty,

        There are representatives today in the U.S. Congress like Senator Bob Menendez who can argue well on behalf of PR. Before, he has tried with little success. Now with the voting power of the PR community, he would be in a better position.

        It is the PR community in locations like FL which have the power. It would be great to ID a couple of local PR leaders to present demands on behalf of PR and to start running for elected positions in states like Florida.

        Hugs, Gronda
