We have also witnessed people in Puerto Rico who “refuse to play by the rules” of capitalism.
Born and raised in Puerto Rico, Congressman Raúl Labrador of Idaho says he wasn’t elected to Congress to solve his homeland’s problems.
“The people of the United States cannot continue a colonial-type relationship with the people of Puerto Rico.”
“Free Puerto Rico so she can solve the problem of her crushing debt without being handcuffed by Congress, its distant and inattentive colonial master.”
It’s Congress that steers the ship, and should Puerto Rico run aground, it’s Congress that decides how best to salvage it.
