US Congress prepares to add a 20% tax to ALL products from Puerto Rico


The mighty, imperialistic U.S. of A. is at it AGAIN!!
‘After one hundred years of citizenship, Puerto Ricans enjoy the media images of the American dream and the underside of the US Constitution. They are free to be poor, under-educated and unemployed; free to be invisible and unheard; free to lose their homes to Wall Street; free to flee the island in utter desperation, as hundreds of thousands have done in recent years.
Puerto Ricans are being blown by one hurricane after another. The latest one is a 20 percent tax on their products, six weeks after a hurricane, thanks to the US Congress.’
… all this and more, just 54 days after Hurricane María devastated their ‘territory/possession’!!


Six weeks after a devastating hurricane, the US Congress is preparing another hurricane for Puerto Rico. Just four days ago, on November 9, the House Ways & Means Committee approved a bill that will add a 20% tax to EVERY product that enters the US from Puerto Rico.

This bill is part of the 2017 congressional “tax reform” package.

Puerto Rican children are about to be sold by the US Department of Education.

If this statement sounds like an exaggeration, consider the following:

Three weeks ago, on October 24, sixty-one members of US Congress delivered an official letter to the US Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos. The letter urged the release of immediate emergency funds for the island’s educational system.

This funding need is desperate.

Even before Hurricane Maria, from 2010 to 2015, one hundred and fifty (150) schools were closed in Puerto Rico. Then this year, in 2017, Puerto Rico’s Secretary of Education Julia Keleher closed yet another 179 public schools, in every town throughout the island.

Today, due to Hurricane Maria, 499 of the remaining schools (45 percent) are also closed. In other words, only one-third of the schools that existed in 2010, are still open for Puerto Rico’s children.

And so, Puerto Rican children are…
