One of the benefits of mom's employment was the airfare employee discount, and for some reason, my parents decided to take us to Puerto Rico when I was a teenager. It wasn't exactly DisneyWorld, but what the hell? The beaches were nice, the water was clear, but the area surrounding the resorts was a war zone.
Now, the "president" wants to take my tax dollars and bail out this Detroit-By-The-Sea.
The Obama administration is calling on Congress to provide Puerto Rico with the support it needs to emerge from a serious debt crisis.
The administration proposed a program that calls on Congress to approve restructuring of Puerto Rico's debt burden and provide oversight for a credible recovery plan. The plan calls for reforms to Puerto Rico's Medicaid program.
The administration says without congressional action Puerto Rico will face a "long and difficult recovery that could have harmful consequences for the residents on the island and beyond."
Pardon my Croatian, but who give a shit? Puerto Rico is not an American state, and many of those citizens who emigrate here - at least here in Philadelphia - are highly unappreciative of what this country has to offer. The villain in the Puerto Rican debt crisis is Puerto Rico. They made their entitlement-strewn hammock; now they can lie in it.
