“Congress Dawdles as Puerto Rico Hurtles Towards Financial Ruin” Reply


POLITICO

With Puerto Rico spiraling toward financial disaster, spokesman Josh Earnest stood in front of cameras yesterday and reiterated the White House’s support for an idea to help the troubled island: Let its public corporations to go through a structured bankruptcy, the same way they can in the 50 states.

In an April campaign stop, Jeb Bush said much the same thing: “Puerto Rico should be given the same rights as the states.”

With both Obama and Bush behind the same plan, you might expect it to have decent odds on Capitol Hill. You’d be wrong. Puerto Rico’s non-voting delegate, Pedro Pierluisi, introduced such a bill in the last Congress, but it never even received a vote in committee.

CNN BREAKING NEWS . . . Reply


After months of stagnant approval ratings, a new CNN/ORC poll finds that for the first time in more than two years, 50% of Americans approve of the way President Obama is handling the presidency.

And his overall ratings are bolstered by increasingly positive reviews of his treatment of race relations and the economy.

The new poll shows Obama’s approval rating up five points since a May survey, when just 45% approved of the job he was doing as president and 52% disapproved. The poll marks the first time his approval rating has been at 50% or higher since May, 2013, and only the second time in that stretch that his disapproval rating has fallen below 50%. It currently stands at 47%.

The margin of sampling error for all adults is +/- 3 percentage points.
