I can’t imagine that Puerto Ricans are that much more accident-prone than the mainland.

No, they certainly aren’t.

I was married to a native of Arecibo for 23 years and visited the island many times.

I was always shocked to see so many apparently able-bodied adults under retirement age who were not employed yet living well. The reason I was given? They get “a check.” And the inevitable “cupones”(food stamps).

I’d just like to know why there is a different standard for a non-federal income tax paying territory than for the rest of the country.
