In the midst of the Arizona-caused Constitutional crisis regarding illegal Mexicans, Democrats thought that it would be a really good idea to ADD A NEW FREAKING STATE!!!
There is a really simple answer, normal people are sick of the Mexicans coming here and abusing the system, getting free education, medical services, houses, food, and clothing, so Democrats knew that tit was about to run dry. They simply cannot add Mexico as a state because the dictators and drug lords there would not stand for it, so Puerto Rico it was.
Democrats KNOW they are going to get trounced in the polls this November, so they have to come up with any kind of way to stay in power. Trust me, they are going to rush this Puerto Rican statehood vote through in record time to have those folks ready to show up at the polling places by November.
Why do you think that is? Because Puerto Ricans DO NOT WORK. When I was there in 2001, the stats were startling. San Juan actually is in worse shape than Detroit. I am NOT KIDDING. In 2001, more than sixty percent (+60%) of the population of the island was on some type of welfare and less than three percent (-3%) paid any taxes at all. Guess where the money comes from to support THOSE UNITED STATES CITIZENS? Yeppers, from you and me.
Do you want to know what Puerto Rico is actually called by those in the know? WELFARE ISLAND. Currently, Puerto Rico uses over six percent (6%) of all US federal dollars for food subsidy. This puts them FIRMLY ABOVE the District of Columbia in WELFARE, by a HUGE margin.
But, of course, they shall get to vote. Who do you think that Puerto Ricans will support? You get ONE FREAKING GUESS.
Here, you read this post on puertorico.com and tell me what YOU think.
Please tell me of any other reason that Congressional Democrats would bring this up NOW. Come on, I know that you can produce a reason.
You know, since we are about to take on a hugely uneducated population to raise, what do you think that we can do to give them areas to pick up a check? Nothing, we already have the damned illegal Mexicans here. And you know why so many of those uneducated workers are on the federal dole? Because Obama and the Democrats have slaughtered the construction industry that COULD employ unskilled and uneducated workers. The construction industry is currently experiencing an unemployment rate of OVER twenty-seven percent (+27).
But, let's take on some more deadbeats to raise, y'all. Nothing could go wrong, huh?
And do NOT get me started on the Democrats' legislation to destroy our banking system. Here's the links to that crap.
How about we add a bunch of crap to the "healthcare" law that DEMANDS small business owners start producing 1099s for any expenditure over 600 bucks a year?
People, at some point, the tar and feathers HAVE to come out. They simply HAVE to.
