we are sending billions of dollars over to Puerto Rico, the number game "billions and trillions" are just so easy to count now days...
I believe Puerto Rico should start helping us pay off the federal reserve. right now residents who are government employees, and those with income sources outside of the territory, pay federal income tax,most bona fide residents of the island are not required to file federal income tax returns.

Hence why I am stating that the island for once and all needs to decide if it wants to be a state or on its own. The days of owning territory is over, that part should be put to rest. If those territories want to be a part of the US, then by all means, make them states, let them be taxed, have the full rights as equal citizens of the USA, or be on their own.

Trump got rolled in his first budget negotiation, it is going to take a lot more than getting the right number of “red” or “blue” politicians to Washington.

Throughout the campaign, Donald Trump spoke boldly about “draining the swamp”, but this spending deal very much reflects the swamp’s priorities.

If there ever was going to be a border wall, it was going to happen now.

Trumpcare is going to end up looking very much like Obamacare.

We should not expect things to move in a positive direction in D.C. until the values of those representing us change, they risk manage the entire process while the Financial System continues on life-support.
All they do is throw huge lifelines to the banking elite and to themselves.
