Stealth task force on Puerto Rican statehood moving bill forward
Call it "Amnesty, East Coast style," call it "the Bilingual Express," but in keeping with the theme of "fundamental transformation," the task force on Puerto Rican statehood (yes, there is one) has been quietly scheming to move this ball forward.
Associate Attorney General, Thomas Perrelli, addressing "taskers," recently shared some high-level thoughts:
Wonderful. It's good to know what your president believes, but it's also good to know the end-game. Puerto Rican statehood will add permanent House seats and a pair of liberal senators to the current Dem-count. It will transform America into a bilingual nation. The average income of Puerto Ricans is less than half of our poorest state, unemployment is high, so it will require increased spending.
No doubt, the president knows all of this. You might say he "believes" it. Puerto Rican statehood doesn't strengthen America, it strengthens Democrats. And that is the truth.
