June 9, 2016 -- During the main debate over the PROMESA bill on Puerto Rico on the floor of the House of Representatives (for the second time that day), Rep. Luis V. Gutiérrez summarized his opposition to the bill by saying, "The people of the Enchanted Island deserve better." He went on to enumerate the reasons he opposes the bill -- in English and briefly in Spanish -- saying, "I expect my fellow Democrats to join me in opposing the same type of unelected control board that has no accountability to the people it is controlling… that made decisions in Flint, Michigan that poisoned the people that did not elect them.” Connect with Rep.
