So the Supreme Court upheld that the US can treat Puerto Rico (a protectorate) differently than the States….at least as far as government handouts like Social Security and SSI are concerned.
Puerto Rico folks don’t pay Federal Income taxes, nor do they get representation in Congress…because they aren’t a state. They have benefitted greatly from being a protectorate of the US…no military costs, no taxes, lots of aid in Natural disasters, etc.
Now they want SSI for their people, despite not having contributed to the pool. They have NEVER anted-up to the table, being instead a drain on US taxpayers.
Are the citizens of Puerto Rico willing to do what the rest of us do in order to reap the benefits? If so, we can talk. If not, then shut up. Were it up to me, they’d be cut loose to mire in their own corruption and lawlessness.
Liberals are, of course, outraged. And it would seem that most who oppose this ruling are from or related to people who are from, Puerto Rico. Odd that. In fact, in advocating for free stuff for Puerto Rico, they are in fact, violating their oaths and bringing their loyalty to their country, the on who elected them. Race over Country is a thing amongst (Many) Hispanics, innit?
