“PUERTO RICO DAY OF ACTION”

PUERTO RICO’S FINANCIAL CRISIS

The clock is ticking!

It’s not getting any better.

There’s still inaction from the “powers that be”. An island, that is a possession/territory of the might US of A is literally “sinking back in the ocean”.

More than 3 million American citizens are paying the price of years of mismanagement by elected officials and their counterparts in the mainland.

There are some voices that have come forward expressing that it’s only ethical and humanitarian to provide alternatives to Puerto Rico to address the economical disaster.

It’s becoming a matter of humanitarian crisis.

The great nation, the great “Master”, has an ethical obligation to come forward and provide options to it’s citizens.

Yes, Puerto Ricans are American citizens. We have been citizens since 1917.

Please, take a bit of time to listen to how this crisis is affecting the Island.

As Humanitarian & Economic Crisis In Puerto Rico Continues To Escalate, Senators Gillibrand, Warren& Schumer & NYC Council Speaker Mark-Viverito, With Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda, Announce New Push To Put Puerto Rico On The Path To Recovery

The situation in Puerto Rico is dire and getting worse. 57 percent of Puerto Rico’s children live in poverty and essential services in the Commonwealth are already in peril.

For example:

More than 150 schools have closed and school security guards have not been paid in months.
Puerto Rico’s only children’s hospital lacks CT and MRI machines, and has 70 vacant nursing positions.
The supplier of gasoline to ambulances, police cars, and fire engines nearly cut off fuel supplies.
Towns have gone without water for days at a time because of unpaid previous bills.

Washington, D.C.

U.S. Senators Kirsten Gillibrand, Elizabeth Warren and Charles E. Schumer and New York City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, with Grammy award winner Lin-Manuel Miranda of the Broadway show Hamilton, and community leaders, today launched a new push to address the humanitarian and economic crisis in Puerto Rico. Senators Gillibrand and Warren introduced new legislation that would give Puerto Rico the ability to file for bankruptcy protection and restructure its debt in a transparent, orderly way. Senators Gillibrand, Warren and Schumer, Miranda, and advocates for Puerto Rico launched a day of action on Capitol Hill and are visiting offices to urge support for the new measure.

“Congress must take action now to help our fellow citizens in Puerto Rico,” said Senator Gillibrand (D-NY). “If Congress fails to act soon, the humanitarian and economic crisis in Puerto Rico will become even more dire and more costly to resolve down the road. We have an opportunity right now to help address this crisis head-on in a way that provides the Commonwealth with a transparent, orderly process to restructure its debt. I urge all of my colleagues to act with a sense of urgency to pass this legislation and help put Puerto Rico on the path to recovery.”

BEST SPEECH IN A LONG TIME

I was watching the Rachel Maddow show last night.

Among the many topics she was going to cover, she mentioned that she had a live interview with Senator Elizabeth Warren (D), Massachusetts.

I have to tell you, this was one of the best speeches I’ve heard in a long time; especially during these crazy days of the 2016 election campaign and all.

Her main point was addressing the members of Congress, who have been stubbornly denying a duly elected president from doing his job, to do their job.

This is the job they were elected to do by their own constituents.

Stubborn mules ….. let Senator Warren explain it.

She does quite a job a it.

Senate Republicans: Do Your Job

There’s a vacancy on the most important court in America, and the message from Senate Republicans is crystal clear: forget the Constitution. For Senate Republicans, it does not matter who President Obama nominates because they will allow no votes and will hold no hearings on that nominee. Their response to one of the most solemn and consequential tasks that our government performs is to pretend that the nominee — and President Obama himself — do not exist.

At the same time that they are blocking all possible Supreme Court nominees, Senate Republicans are in a panic because their party appears to be on a path to nominate one of two extremists for president — extremists who attack the legitimacy of their political opponents and demean millions of Americans. Senate Republicans worry that, if either candidate is selected to be the party’s standard-bearer, the Republican party will lose in November.

Republicans’ stance on Supreme Court nominees and their response to the extremists at the top of their party’s ticket are the same issue. And the solution is simple. If Republican Senators want to stand up to extremists running for president, they can start by standing up to extremists in the Senate.

They can start by doing their jobs.

Article II, Section 2 of the Constitution says that the president nominates justices to the Supreme Court, with the advice and consent of the Senate.

There is no secret clause that says “…except when that president is a Democrat.” If Senators object to a nominee’s qualifications, they can vote no and explain themselves to the American people. Although President Obama and I are members of the same political party, I haven’t agreed with every single nomination he’s made — and I have made my objections clear. That’s how advice and consent works: learn about the nominees, and then use your best, good faith judgment to evaluate their qualifications.

Because here’s the deal: extremists might not like it, but Barack Obama won the presidency in 2008 by nine million votes and won re-election in 2012 by five million votes. There were no recounts or hanging chads, no stuffing the ballot box or tampering with voting machines, no intervention from the Supreme Court. President Obama was elected the legitimate president seven years ago, and he is the legitimate president right now.

So if it’s true that some Republican Senators are finally ready to stand up to the extremism that denies the legitimacy of this president and of the Constitution, I say to them: do your job. Vote on a Supreme Court nominee. Vote on District Court judges and Circuit Court judges. Vote on ambassadors. Vote on agency leaders and counterterrorism officials.

If Senate Republicans want to stop extremism in their party, they can start by showing the American people that they respect the president and the Constitution enough to do their job in the United States Senate.
