I am sure most of you have not been paying attention, but PR is a perfect example of what will happen if we keep going down the entitlement path:
The first one is fascinating, and rather funny that the path the Times wants us to take is exactly the same as the one that is failing in PR (i.e. Government sponsored everything, they have had Socialized Medicine/single payer since 93 etc.). Anyway, we need some new stuff here, and this is a developing and very interesting topic.
Especially in regards to the Title 3 bankruptcy. IN the past, no US territory was allowed to do this. Currently no state is allowed to do it. But the pattern of changing the laws to allow PR to do it in 2016 could definately repeat itself, especially with the most teetering of states (Illinois etc).
