“Right now in Puerto Rico, the government is struggling with an unsustainable amount of debt. Rather than restructuring that debt in a way that protects the people of Puerto Rico, a small group of hedge fund billionaires are demanding extreme austerity policies that would decimate public services, including the firing of teachers and the closing of schools. It is unacceptable that these Wall Street investors will reap huge profits off the suffering and misery of the Puerto Rican people. These creditors must be forced to negotiate a debt repayment plan that is fair to both sides – the people of Puerto Rico deserve nothing less.” — Bernie Sanders
The Puerto Rico primary is on June 5th, with 67 delegates at stake, more than any of the last 4 Democratic contests.
