I guess the Trumpster does Shocked Roll Eyes


A little review

Puerto Rico dug themselves in a 73 Billion dollar debt before the Hurricane.

Puerto Rico's infrastructure was in ruins BEFORE the Hurricane.

Puerto Rico has a 26% Government workforce Shocked  Is that like more than 1 in 4 adults? Shocked
Quote:


The White House on Tuesday asked Congress for $5 billion to ease a fiscal crisis striking the government of Puerto Rico in the wake of Hurricane Maria.

Puerto Rico's central government and various municipalities and other local governments are suffering unsustainable cash shortfalls as Maria has choked off revenues and strained resources. The administration's request, so far delivered informally, would provide $4.9 billion for Puerto Rico and its local jurisdictions.

The White House also requested $150 million to help Puerto Rico with the 10 percent match required for Federal Emergency Management Agency disaster relief.

Trump, as usual, had the right idea. Line them all up and throw rolls of paper towels at them.  Or better yet, send done some film crews and transmit back a reality TV show where people are really trying to survive on a tropical island. The proceeds from the ad revenue can go to disaster relief and island clean-up until the entire island is spic and span. If you look at it that way, they are already halfway there.

Trump is now saying "We cannot keep FEMA, the Military & the First Responders ... in P.R. forever!"

He's just batting it out of the park in terms of his latino outreach program...

Well, I can think of my dollars going to worse things, like the Department of Ed., the Pentagon, the CIA, the Treasury, the FBI, ATF, etc. etc.

Woah, you mean because they lack representation, they can avoid most forms of taxation? The founders would have no doubt been outraged!
