What has Puerto Rico done for the rest of us Americans. Is it our fault they decided to stay on the island when they knew what was coming? America’s chicken. I live in the center of the US and haven’t had ANY criris hit here. I know where I am, I will be ok. Come on over to the Land of Enchantment and enjoy life
Cool America’s chicken design in here!
Yes, very reasonable, let’s empty the island and move millions of people in one week to the mainland. Sound easy, who cares about logistics, America’s chicken. food, shelter and all the relocation nightmares they have to endure. Yep, you have the answer. Perfect, thank you for enlightening the rest of us.
Let’s just see if you say the same thing after the next flood or tornado ravishes where you live. Without representation in Congress, they miss out on some of the pork that other areas of this country get. I believe a new farm bill was just passed for instance. I’m not saying the bill is good or bad just that they are not being treated fairly. Plus news doesn’t pay enough attention to their Pruitt like government
Show me your color and hang out!
Let me explain what the island does for you, it brings money back to the US, plain and simple. The island gets taxed for everything, the Jones act doesn’t allow PR to freely exchange goods with any other place other than the US and that cost millions to do- so, you get perhaps some food stamps and government help from the islands demise you troll.
That is unfortunately a terribly ignorant statement, Ciro. Because you’ve never had to evacuate a hurricane zone, you truly don’t understand the challenges. I never did either until recently. Let’s just say that they couldn’t. End of story. They COULDN’T. I’m so happy for you that you’ve never lived through any catastrophic event, that you’re so well taken care of and content that you think you can be mean and ugly to those who aren’t as fortunate as you. SHAME of you.
