Just a programming note for readers:
The House has just opened up the vote for consideration of a 90 minute debate upon H.R. 2499 – Puerto Rico Democracy Act of 2009. To see the live streaming coverage, go to C-Span here.
The House has passed H.R. 2499 with the deliberately opaque language asking Puerto Ricans if they are happy with their current government and opening the door to the progressive movement’s statehood push.
