Puerto Rican - The Wholly UNDEMOCRATIC Activity


The House has approved a bipartisan bill to help Puerto Rico tackle its $70 billion debt crisis, just weeks before a July deadline for the island's next debt payment.

The bill is for debt restructuring but not for helping the island of Puerto Rico to create jobs or help the people.

Here we go again, the United States government imposing laws for the people of Puerto Rico with any regard for them.  If the U.S. can't keep their promises since the took over the island without any permission, then let then be free and independent.   Puerto Rican's are AMERICAN CITIZENS but you treat them like second class citizens.  It is despicable President Obama!!!!  They were forced to fight for freedom since World War I and it took more than 50 years to say "Thank you" for fighting and dying for America.  



"This undemocratic board would have the power to slash pensions, cut education and health care, and increase taxes on working families in Puerto Rico. " Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.)

"It is better to have nothing than this law, because it does not give any protection to the pensions of the retirees, or provide an economic growth plan."Roberto Pagan, SEIU Puerto Rico

Listen to Congressman Luis Gutiérrez that continues to fight for the rights of the Puerto Rican people.
