We really need to tell PR to “sh*t or get off the pot”, i.e., become a full fledged state (and pay income tax) or have full independence.
Independence for PR = another Cuba.
The Democrat congress passed a bill designed to do pretty much that. Only “Shiite” is the outcome they want. They are drooling over the prospect of a half dozen morre screaming liberals in Congress if PR goes for statehood.
Of course, there is a relatively conservative PNP governor in San Juan right now but he is a rare exception.
