Bernie Sanders: Dear Fed, Bail Out Puerto Rico

Well, that may happen anyways [1] if the House of Representatives takes it up.

Sen. Bernie Sanders called on the Federal Reserve Monday to provide emergency loans to the government of Puerto Rico, saving the residents of the island from its fiscal crisis.

While visiting Puerto Rico, the Democratic candidate for president said that if the central bank “could bail out Wall Street, it can help the 3.5 million American citizens in Puerto Rico improve its economy and lift its children out of poverty.”
