Because i'm not gonna vote for a congressman that is fine with having our school funding and our state medicaid funding and other shit cut because there is now 51 pieces of pie instead of 50... PR is a financial disaster (OF THEIR OWN MAKING) that would hurt the funding of many states that already don't get enough funding... Even democrat congressman would see that and the vote wouldn't even be close.... Sorry but money is how this country works you only have so much and more people get hurt in the process if you just spread it too thin...
    Why not? We already fund several bankrupt states. What harm is another one gonna do? Lol.
    Do no harm, but take no shit.

    I can't speak for "bankrupt" but there are ten states that owe more money than Puerto Rico.

    These include Texas and Florida. Louisiana owes about half what PR does. And we sent everything we had, with or without concerns with "big water ocean water", immediately, and haven't talked about their debt once until Trump said something stupid about why he wasn't helping his fellow Americans.

    That guy should totally talk to the President of the Virgin Islands. That might straighten things out.
