via Only Congress Can Rescue Puerto Rico – The New York Times

It is hard to understand how anyone, besides the creditors, would benefit from the US Congress refusal to assist PR in its struggle to maintain financial stability. Many of the 3.5 million people living in PR are already planning its escape to the US to get assistance in the US mainland. Even the only “winners” , the creditors, are also “losers”, since they face many years of chaotic litigation with desperate politicians from PR, a fate worse than purgatory.

Es difícil entender cómo alguien, además de los acreedores, se beneficiaría de la negativa del Congreso de Estados Unidos para ayudar a PR en su lucha por mantener la estabilidad financiera del pais.  Muchos de los 3,5 millones de personas que viven en PR ya están planeando su escape a los EE.UU. para recibir ayuda en la parte continental de Estados Unidos. Incluso los únicos “ganadores”, los acreedores, también son “perdedores”, ya que se enfrentan muchos años de litigio caótico con los políticos desesperados de PR, un destino peor que el purgatorio.

I love media and communication, as well as digital technology. I write and speak fluently in Spanish and English. I was born in New York, but was sent to Puerto Rico at an early age, where I lived until drafted by the U.S. army. Upon returning from an honorable discharge, I found Puerto Rico small and limited at the time. I moved to Boston where I pursued musical studies and later worked as a musician, teacher, and speech-pathologist in New York. I am currently still interested in world politics, social justice, and income inequality. Health and wellness are essential to survive and thrive. I am working on patience and skills necessary to keep learning.
