The US Congress is currently deciding the economic fate of Puerto Rico. It is holding hearings on how to impose a Financial Control Board, that will rule over the entire island.
This Board will be a collection agency for U.S. hedge funds. It will also be as corrupt as the Gov. Fortuño administration.
In a New York Daily News op ed, the author of War Against All Puerto Ricans exposed this scheme. Here is the exposé, as published in the Daily News:
The Republicans in Washington, D.C. (particularly Sen. Orrin Hatch) claim that this Board will “educate and benefit” the people of Puerto Rico.
But as Pedro Albizu Campos once wrote, “In the U.S. owning one man makes you a scoundrel, but owning an entire nation makes you a colonial benefactor.”
One Hundred Years of Solitude, followed by a Financial Control Board
This “Control Board” will not reform the Jones Act, encourage a shipping industry, cut any taxes, restore any pensions, open any schools, or bring any jobs from Jacksonville FL to San Juan.
Instead this Board will be the judge, jury, and emperor of Puerto Rico. It will dictate the economy and manage all its money. It will tell the island’s government what to do, when to jump, and how high.
The people of Puerto Rico need to understand this Financial Control Board, its imperial powers, and its intentions for their island.
Thank you to the Daily News, for publishing this editorial.
