    I would have thought that the absolute dependence of Puerto Rico’s population on government handouts would have made it extremely attractive to the Senate majority!

      The Senate is a very exclusive club. Only 100 member. They’re NOT about to open up membership without good reason.

        I’ll take the other side of that. Andrew has it right. If the majority party can increase its majority by two more, they would do it. Politics isn’t about “serving.” It’s about power and two more reliable Dems in the Senate would be alluring to them.

    It’s time to spin Puerto Rico off. Let them default on their debts and start with a clean slate. I don’t want to be responsible for them.
