HOW MANY PEOPLE DIED IN PUERTO RICO? – DEPENDS ON WHO YOU ASK – WHO WAS ULTIMATELY RESPONSIBLE

Did 65 die or  was it 3000? And where are the bodies? Who is to blame for this? First of all Puerto Rico is a welfare sanctuary run to the ground by Democrats – a failed state. Their infrastructure was was comparable to those of third world countries – think South Africa, Iran and Iraq. Electricity was dole out by the hour, water systems in many cases were inoperable. But the failed state, 41% of the employed worked for the government, was an accident waiting to happen; and it did.

Most deaths after Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico are blamed on interruptions in medical care due to power outages and blocked or washed out roads, said the report published in the New England Journal of Medicine.

Approximately one-third of post-hurricane deaths were reported by household members as being caused by delayed or prevented access to medical care,” said the report.”

The bottom line is two fold; One those responsible for the majority of deaths were the elected government officials of Puerto Rico, who were irresponsible; their obligation was to prepare and warn the people of the coming disaster; this they did not do.

Secondly, to blame Trump for his lack of empathy is insinuating that the President of the United States caused the problem. He did not. But we must remind those who place blame of the FACT that those who live in a Welfare State always depend on others to do their bidding. And so it was with Puerto Rico when hurricane Maria hit. The citizens waited for the Government to step in and lend a helping hand while they sat idly by, waiting for disaster to hit.
