Tax bill bad for Puerto Rico

The Columbus Dispatch - - Letters To The Editor -

Kick ’em when they’re down. That’s what a pro­vi­sion in the pro­posed House tax plan would do to Puerto Rico. It would im­pose a 20 per­cent tax on goods made in Puerto Rico and shipped to the U.S. main­land. It would ef­fec­tively kill man­u­fac­tur­ing on the is­land na­tion dev­as­tated by hur­ri­canes and in des­per­ate need of eco­nomic re­cov­ery.

Is this how the Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion gets back at Puerto Rico, whose peo­ple are United States ci­ti­zens, for need­ing our as­sis­tance? How heart­less can you get?
