    Puerto ricans do NOT pay federal income tax - a fact the media has censored. And yet the deadbeat welfare bums in PR insist we tax-paying americans in the states solve their problems!!!

    There is probably something to that.

    We are having to import truck drivers to deliver supplies because
    they don't have near enough.

    Half that frickin' island is being supported by the State.

    Those folks have forgotten how to work

    did those who remained on PR throughout the storm are still pissed that Trump didnt arrive there within 48 hours with a fleet of generators/gas/food/batteries/water and hot pockets?

    Everyone on the island is a victim. How do people get to work with impassible roads, destroyed vehicles, no fuel...etc?

    What part of total devastation don't you get?

    That there is the pinnacle of irony coming from an elitist asshole who's been handed everything all his life and never even held a job until last January.

    The 1920 law, which applies to all US ports, requires that all goods shipped to or from the island be handled by American ships, to the deliberate exclusion of lower-cost foreign freighters.
    The law, according to economists, cited by Denis, makes food cost twice as much in Puerto Rico as in nearby Florida, and has drained as much as $17 billion from the island between 1990 and 2010.

    they pay one way or another.
