The media is being quite because Obama does not want the public to know the slick trick they are pulling.
The 1st vote question is“Should Puerto Rico maintain its present political status.” The 2nd vote gives 3 options.Real time chicago Real Estate
•Independence – breaking all ties between the U.S. and Puerto Rico, creating a separate nation
•Associated Sovereignty – eliminates the U.S. citizenship and Territorial Clause controls of Puerto Rico, but maintains ties with the United States
•Puerto Rico Statehood – makes Puerto Rico the 51st state of the United States, with six congressmen, two U.S. senators and eight presidential electoral votes
If the 2nd vote happen they will have no choice but to vote foe statehood.
In the past, they has ask "Do you want to be a State". This was a yes or No vote.
This way they will be sure to get statehood. The Progressive want the extra seat in Congress. This also applies to making illegal legal.
If anyone talk against this they will be lable a "RACIST"
