    When is FEMA and the federal government going to get the hell out of Texas and Florida. We, as a country, have done enough to help those states recover from their recent hurricanes. They need to step up to the plate and help themselves. We just can't afford to pour money and manpower into those states forever. Enough is enough! Bigly!

    They haven't done their job yet. There's whole trees stacked on top of each other on the side of roads still.

    Nope, Puerto Rico pays no federal taxes yet is getting billions in aide, while Florida and Texas has paid federal taxes since they have been enacted. If PR wants to be helped then they need to start paying taxes like the rest of US...

    Make them a State. Territories don’t pay taxes, and don’t get to influence politics. No voting member in the House or Senate. Their votes for President don’t matter.

    Federal voting rights in Puerto Rico - Wikipedia

    Now, if you tax them without making them a State that has a term from history attached. Oh yes. Taxation without Representation. No taxation without representation - Wikipedia

    You might have heard about it at some point. It’s sort of a new thing. Some damned fools actually that it was a reason to revolt.

    Grr, I'm mad! We pay county taxes for yard waste pickup. County said "Just pile it up, they'll be by to get it with a Prentice loader".

    Crap's still there since 2 days after Irma.
