    Texas has a debt of $138 billion.

    Puerto Rico has debt of $70 billion.

    Did Texas not get aid?

    Porto Rico is a independent commonwealth voluntarily associated with the USA! According to my Encyclopedia, Porto Ricans are descendant from Spaniards mixing with Negro in addition to Arawak and Moriquen inhabitants originally from Africa and South America respectively! Spainards were desperate SOBs back in the day apparently. :p The South American "Inidian" genes are probably why no athletes come from Porto Rico. They are little fellas. :p So basically Porto Rica is like Mexico if Mexico had no USA factories. Crime, savagery, ugly ass inhabitants and low intelligence. That is not to say there are some descent people there. I am talking in generalities!

    Apparently Puerto Rico, not Porto Rico which might be Portuguese or something, (though it was called that for a short time once upon a time) is a part of America, and apparently they pay Federal Taxes, and apparently they paid $3.7 billion in Federal Taxes in 2009.

    Puerto Rico has a GDP of $35,000, which puts it slightly ahead of Mississippi at the bottom of the pile. Hence why it doesn't pay as much as others.

    we won Puerto Rico in a war, that's why we own it, is what I read read? It's ours, lock, stock, and barrel... this is why they are citizens at birth, no?

    PR is a socialist sewer full of hispanic indians who are the same as our american indians. A hopeless helpless people who need the white man to take care of them.
