There are far too many people posting their opinion here based only on the Countable title of the bill without seeming to understand much about the Puerto Rico situation. I'm from Puerto Rico and my family lives there, and there's a fair amount of outrage due to this bill. Puerto Rico belongs to the states, but is not a part of it, so it has no voting rights in the US congress nor presidency. This is not the Puerto Ricans' choice, as many seem to believe. Puerto Rico's statehood is purely dependent on the US congress. This bill appoints an oversight board with no accountability to the people of Puerto Rico whatsoever, which simply means they will just push the island to pay its debt without any consideration as to the impact of their decisions on the healthcare and education systems in Puerto Rico. This bill reduces the minimum wage to under $5 an hour for folks under 25 - if any of you have traveled to Puerto Rico, you'll realize that's not a living wage, much less for someone who just finished an education. Lastly, what many here don't seem to realize when they say "they should fix their own mess, it's not our responsibility" is... every single Puerto Rican is a US citizen. My family can move to the US in a heartbeat and this kind of policy will simply make it all the more appealing for young Puerto Ricans to pay the $50 it costs to get on a JetBlue flight to the US, as 6000 Puerto Ricans have been doing each month for the past year. Furthermore, it is a combination of policies made in Congress and local PR policies that led the island to its current position. Being a territory with no voting power in congress, it is unfair to hold Puerto Rico fully accountable for its current position. Just like when a company fails we first look at its board of directors and executive teams, we should hold accountable both the United States and Puerto Rico politicians that shaped the current situation of what we like to call a US "territory", which is eerly similar to a colony.
