The antistatehood forces (outside and within the PDP) voted (in a coalition) against the statehood ideology of the NPP.

Will the coalition survive these next 4 yrs?

The PPD will not survive the next 4 years ... mark my words. They will split between the Soberanistas and and the colony supporters.

Bhatia and Perello are no longer on speaking terms and it's only been a month and a half!

As all ideological colalitions, this govt. will be skating on thin (black) ice, all the time; while juggling to keep everyone (soberanistas, colonialists, socialists, "pseudo independentistas, labor unions, UPR students, and every anti statehood group) happy.

While they're "at it"; how will we, taxpayers, suffer-is the big question here.

That there is exactly the reason why they will fail. It is impossible to satisfy all those groups.

They still have a way out of their mess and that is by passing a law for a constitutional assembly next year (while Congress does nothing about 2012 plebiscite results).

That will be a colossal waste of time and money that will accomplish nothing. Nothing they come up with will ever be approved by Washington, assuming they can even manage to agree on something in the first place.

They will dither and babble and come up with the same old "enhanced commonwealth" that has already been rejected 10 times.

A constitutional convention will give time to all anti statehood forces here and in the US (especially in Washington) to delay and come up with new ways of derailing statehood.

Furthermore who is going to pay for this absurdity? The central government that is millions in debt on top of all the wasteful laws they just pass like the District Attorney reorganization?

The PPD is like the kid with his hands in the cookie jar.

Each and every Puerto Rican taxpayer (with Washington's antistatehood forces' "blessings"-i.e. money).

Especially the biggest enemies of equality - Nydia Velasquez and Luis Gutierrez. Velasquez's father was a PPD official so she has obvious loyalties to the status quo.

Never mind Velazquez' dad; she has been elected in New York with money from island Puerto Rican taxpayers transferred there by the colonialists when in power here.
