On Thursday, June 22, 2017, when the Senate Republicans released a draft bill to replace Obamacare, Nancy Pelosi decided to attack it as a tax bill in disguise. Remember, this is the same person who said we need to pass it so we can know what is in the bill. But, Obamacare is and remains a disaster, and so any measure to replace it by the Republicans will result in the Left attacking the Republicans. Nancy Pelosi also stated she was some type of master legislator, which is amusing and comical at best, since her legislation is nothing but government overreach. Former house speaker Pelosi also stated that the Democrats are narrowing the gap, and her claim is from the gap during the special elections. Pelosi believes that the gap is narrowing that the Democrats are actually winning and that they will actually win in 2018 and 2020. Pelosi is delusional, as the only reason why the gap was narrowed was due to socialists, communists, Marxists, and supporters of big government voting in the special elections by voting for the big government Democrats.
For the fifth time in its history the U.S. Commonwealth of Puerto Rico held a plebiscite to determine if the people wanted to become part of the United States of America. Now, the media will report that a staggering 97% voted to join the union by becoming the 51st state, but only 23% of the eligible voter population voted in the referendum. This vote is non-binding as Congress would have to determine if the island should become the 51st state. It is highly unlikely that Puerto Rico will become the 51st state, as Congress has more important things to do, but it is possible that it could become the 51st state in the future.
Let’s remember something, Puerto Rico is in too much debt and they will probably collapse financially if they don’t get their act together. Congress should pass legislation so that Puerto Rico and its population are not treated as a second-class territory and citizens of the United States of America. Puerto Rico and its people are already part of the United States of America and they should be treated the same as everyone else in the United States of America.
