43 Percent Of Puerto Ricans Are On Food Stamps
San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz claimed on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” that 43 percent of Puerto Ricans receive some sort of government nutritional assistance.

“Just to give you an idea, Anderson, 1.3 million Puerto Ricans out of 3.2 million that live in the island nation in Puerto Rico are receiving some sort of nutritional assistance. So that means that about 43 percent of the population needs this to put food on the table,” Cruz said Tuesday.

Verdict: True

About 1.3 million Puerto Ricans, or 42 percent of the population, are enrolled in the Nutrition Assistance for Puerto Rico (NAP) program, according to a government spokesperson for Puerto Rico.

Fact Check:

Cruz made the claim after CNN host Anderson Cooper asked for her reaction to reports that President Donald Trump complained in a private meeting with lawmakers about the amount of money being allocated to disaster relief in Puerto Rico.

“Well, the president continues to show his vindictive behavior towards Puerto Rico, and he continues to make the humanitarian crisis worse. What we’re talking about is

Lazy? What a bunch of ignorants! The island was a war spoil, didn't have a chance to choose. Helping the US .in all wars , all of them, when they got citizenship ,was because they needed people to go to war .( Ww1 ww 2 and the rest ! Cannon meat ). Can't vote for president . They pay for everything 3 or 4 times more , because they need to pay to use their own port and us ships ( cabotage law ). The same they didn't take away , so the people could receive humanitarian help in huracanese Maria and the next one ..... 3000 people die , that we know. .... Us, tested agent orange there, the contraceptive pill , and who knows what else! They bombarded the small town island for practice , and their people are dying of cancer.......their native people was there before discovery and the rest on the mainland , so yes Americans they are. ......

Almost the entire caribbean has to be written off.

They have been told to hate white people, anglo variety, but they love the hand-outs so won't leave.

They also have been told that white people stole from them, so everything has to be nailed down.

Go back, become cannibals again, and stop blaming people who wanted you to have a better life by providing health care, education, etc. It's as though that population refuses to accept adult responsibility.

All to keep the subsidized "free" show going.
You aren't worth it.

We know which "minority" put this in your minds for their benefit. They are a small group that needs troops to add to the complaint chorus so they can skim the cream.

Guess what? Almost all the money is gone so you will have to grow up. Find a sense of gratitude for all that was given you, I know that that may take a miracle.

 Quoting: Jake



The more I think about the culture of this, the more it looks like north v. south.

Look at the e.u. and the countries that give the most and the countries on life support.

These are simply different mentalities that are destructive to one another.

It's why we cannot be one world.

When all the northern europeans and their descendants are gone, since these are such horrible, biased racists, then no economy will matter.

Say good-bye to flush toilets and ipads and traversible roads brought to you by people who believed that you would value them and those who brought them to you.

Ingrates ruined the world.

They are a waste of valuable time and intellectual effort.

You were propagandized by our home-grown bolshies who don't really think things through or who are deliberately deceptive.

You guys are white and american when it's convenient for you. I see the flag you fly.

I live among you so know this.

Guess what, life is hard for most ordinary people.
Even the young ones on wall street.

They work long hours and have to produce or they are fired.
Except for the affirm. hires, of course.

They also have to do charitable work or donate.

But if they keep doing it, it is because they were told to learn to be responsible for themselves.

Even the best parents in terms of resources aren't around forever.

No one is perfect, but I respect those who accept that they have to do the world's work.

Why do "minorities" want to harm the geese that lay the golden eggs?

Why is it so hard to have a sense of gratitude to those who help you?
