Trump blames Puerto Rico for the potential government shutdown


Government shut-down averted for one week. Repeat cycle by May 5 … I shudder to see these names in the same sentence: Puerto Rico & Drumpf!
#Resist … ✊🏽

A report from the Los Angeles Times.

Congress hopes to avoid a government shutdown by swiftly approving a stopgap spending bill to allow negotiations to continue for another week on a longer-term funding deal.

But negotiators were still trying to narrow a few unresolved issues — including aid to Puerto Rico.

The concern is about Puerto Rico’s struggling Medicaid program, which is running short on funds and could lead to 900,000 residents losing healthcare coverage by the end of the year. Democrats want to provide Puerto Rico aid, but Trump called it a “bailout.”

Trump tweeted his concerns.

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!!!
