Free Puerto Rico From Unjust Debt
Under the current plan from the Fiscal Oversight Board to settle a significant part of the island’s public debt, Wall Street will extract billions in profits from Puerto Rican families forced to pay the highest sales tax of any US jurisdiction.
Judge Laura Taylor Swain, the federal bankruptcy judge ruling on how to resolve the public debt, will decide on January 16 whether this nefarious deal should go through.
Judge Swain, we call on you to reject the deal brought to you by the Fiscal Oversight Board, which would burden Puerto Ricans for years to come with an unfair tax load. On January 16, we urge you to direct the Fiscal Oversight Board to bring you a deal that will put the people over the banks.
