Voting Today: Puerto Rico Statehood

There's a few million more Democrat voters, eh?

Puerto Rico's Commonwealth status is kind of an odd arrangement, but Puerto Ricans have refused several offers of statehood over the years. They overwhelmingly prefer commonwealth status (about 70% see it favorably) and consider it the "best of both worlds."

I didn't hear about this vote today until 5 pm last night.

One rather gets the impression that this Congress just wants to keep throwing crazy stuff at us so quickly, on holidays and in the middle of the night and as barely publicized surprises, that its almost impossible for a benumbed citizenry to mount a defense against each item.
