Has anyone been watching the news? Puerto Rico is near bankruptcy! Of course they would want to bailed out by the U.S. nanny-gov.
And since the Liberals want 'Nanny Control' they will be all for P.R. statehood.
I personally have no prob with P.R. statehood depending on.... WHY.

None of that matters to DemoRATS. They want more Obama voting, welfare slugs.

It's just that simple.

IF the U.S. of A. were a company or household, it would be bankrupt. Creditors would have sued a very long time ago forcing the bankruptcy.

That isn't necessarily a good thing either.
This F'd up government 'loans' itself money in the form of bonds, borrows from the Social Security non-trust fund, borrows from other countries that are NOT friendly, & then all too often simply prints more money than Milton Bradley, devaluing our own money & screwing with interest rates, business growth & existing revenue channels.
Not to mention expanding programs that are already underfunded. Tell me that those are good financial choices. WOOF!
