All because the governor is a Harvard Educated liberal... who is trying to make the island safe for rich bankers to buy up all the houses for pennies on the dollar as most of the population moves to Florida.

there is no rush to fix the infrastructure because it will cause houses and land values to rise... the more miserable they can make it, the more money can be made...

it's a win win for all as rich bankers can move to PR a separate country from the USA but close enough to trade and be protected by the good old USA and yet control their PR government enough to eliminate taxing the rich moving in...

while Florida coughs up the welfare dough to take in the poor...

When all the best land and houses are sold... everything will be miraculously repaired... almost over night....

The political status of Puerto Rico is that of an unincorporated territory of the United States. As such, the island is neither a sovereign nation nor a U.S. state. Because of that ambiguity, the territory, as a polity, lacks certain rights but enjoys certain benefits that other polities have or lack.

One of the benefits is control of taxation. Everyone is waiting for the casino's to come back. PR will become the new Cuba of the 1950's....
