PUERTO RICO’S CRISIS

I have been following Puerto Rico’s situation for a long time.

As many of you may know, I was born there.

I’ve been also following John Oliver, Lin-Manuel Miranda and the “War Against All Puerto Ricans” blog.

Today they all came together to explain and plead the case for Puerto Rico.

As I looked through Facebook this morning, I found this video … presented over and over …. and, of course, I shared over and over.

Why?

Because this is my country and not many know the real situation.

Many think that Puerto Rico is a dead-beat country who won’t pay the money it owes.

The situation is much more complicated.

To add insult to injury, there’s a group called CFIF paying for TV ads which state that what Puerto Rico wants is a “Super Chapter 9” Bankruptcy Legislation.

Please, take a short time of your busy schedule and be educated about the situation in Puerto Rico.

Remember, Puerto Ricans ARE American citizens.

“PUERTO RICO … LET IT SINK BACK IN THE OCEAN”

(Remember “West Side Story”?)

It’s no secret. Puerto Rico has a huge financial debt.

To those who don’t know, it seems that it’s all Puerto Rico’s fault.

“After  years of wild overspending …. “

There’s so much more.

I’ve learned so much about my country as a senior citizen than as a senior in school. That makes me sad because my country’s history isn’t taught the way it should be.

When I saw the video posted below, I could barely contain my anger.

It’s all based on lies … yet again, what isn’t?

This is what I woke up to this morning … 

Dark Money” group spends $200,000 in TV ads, to keep Puerto Rico from receiving any debt relief

A group called the “Center for Individual Freedom” (CFIF) has purchased $200,000 in TV ads in the Washington D.C. media market, to convince legislators to deny Puerto Rico any immediate debt relief.

The ads will air on Fox, NBC, ABC and CBS affiliates in the D.C. area. They will also run on local D.C. news programs, as well as the Sunday, April 10, episode of “Meet the Press.”

There are so many facts that the general public doesn’t know.

Of, course, the media doesn’t report them.

I found another article/source that I would like to share with you.

Please, take some time to take a look.

Thank you!

10 F*CKED UP FACTS ABOUT PUERTO RICO
The economic crisis isn’t the only thing we should care about

By Gabe Gonzalez Posted on March 31, 2016

Puerto Rico is an island rich in history, art, and culture. It’s where my family grew up and it’s a place near and dear to my heart. While the economic crisis affecting the commonwealth has raised awareness about one issue facing the island, there’s a bit more to it than that.
I’ve compiled this list not to focus on the “negative” aspects of the realities that face Puerto Rico, but rather, to share some challenges Puerto Ricans overcome every day.

These might come as no surprise to those living on the island, but here are ten f*cked up facts about Puerto Rico:

Puerto Ricans pay more and get less in social Security benefits

The US military used Puerto Rico as a bomb testing site

Puerto Ricans pay insane utility rates

While Puerto Rico’s homicide rate is falling, it’s about 5X higher than the US average

Doctors are leaving Puerto Rico at an alarming rate

Puerto Rico is running out of money to pay for public school necessities

In 2015, ten business people were arrested for bribing the government and embezzling money

The CDC expects 80% of people in Puerto Rico will contract the ZIKA virus

A US District judge upheld the ban on gay marriage in Puerto Rico

(this has been overturned, as of this writing)

Puerto Rico’s economy relies heavily on Wal-Mart.

CFIF Launches National Media Campaign to Oppose House “Super Chapter 9” Bankruptcy Legislation for Puerto Rico

According to Sunlight Foundation’s Political Ad Sleuth tool, a 501(c)(4) dark money group called the Center for Individual Freedom (CFIF) has purchased at least $200,000 in ads in the Washington, D.C., market, an attempt to influence lawmakers crafting economic legislation to assist Puerto Rico’s dire financial situation.

The territory is currently struggling under enormous debt obligations and is seeking help from Congress and the federal government.
