Of the 535 Senators and Congresspersons in Washington D.C., less than five of them know much about Puerto Rico…and none of those five are in senior positions of power.
These 535 legislators are responsible for the 1920 Jones Act, which has strangled the island’s economy for 96 years. Now in 2016, they’re responsible for a bankruptcy disaster and a Financial Control Board. For the benefit of these lawmakers, here is a history lesson on Puerto Rico:
It is deeply irresponsible, to make laws for 3.7 million people without knowing anything about them. We urge these politicians to stop listening to lobbyists for just a few minutes…and to stop letting those lobbyists write our laws.
The only way to do this, is for the politicians to learn a bit of history.
It’s not very difficult…and it’s not too much to ask.
For a history of the War Against All Puerto Ricans, read the book…
