Contrary to what some red-state people believe, Puerto Ricans are American citizens just like Alabamans and Texans. Yes, they should at some point sh-t or get off the pot and either request statehood or independence, but this is now; they're Americans and they should enjoy the advantages of that. What would happen to all the crony capitalist if they just started refusing to pay? You can bet there's a loophole to get them relief then. Can't have congressional cronies going broke, now can we? I mean, where would the campaign money come from?
