The art of brinkmanship: Gobernador vs. The Board 

What are the public and social policies, who can and cannot dictate them, should they be dictated at all and in principle, and what is the best way to formulate and to implement the good, sound, healthy social policies; as the essential part of the good governance as the leading concept in political science? 

This past week Gov. Rosello accused the PR Financial Oversight Board of meddling into public policies and the intentions to dictate them. This evokes the whole array of questions mentioned above. They deserve the competent public discussions. The political and the financial necessities can be combined if the big picture is viewed and taken into account. 

The beggers cannot be choosers, someone might comment smugly. The bondholders demandsshould be met, to maintain the financial credibility. But, it seems to me, this has to be done with the minimum sacrifices for pension plans and workers. These projected hypothetical savings might make the relatively insignificant contribution to the overall economic picture, and these corrective measures might only add to the further demoralization of the workforce. More expert information, estimates, and opinions are needed on this subject. 

However, it is not bad that this conflict came into the open, and was not swept under the rug. Maybe, something good indeed will come out of this public discussion. 

The political brinkmanship is an art and quite often it is used as a tool, and more so in this age of political chutzpah unbound, the age of Trumpismo-Putinismo (cum Cretinismo, quite sometimes). The creation of good and efficient social policies is the higher art, it should be free from these passing complications, and it should also be more of the fundamental and the longer term enterprise.

They intend to dictate public policy: Puerto Ricos governor spars with federal oversight board

  • Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello gave an impassioned televised address to publicly deny many of the requirements from an oversight board federally appointed to oversee the islands new fiscal plan.
  • They intend to dictate public policy, reducing health benefits while striking public employees and the economy of the Island, he said.
  • Earlier on Wednesday, the oversight board sent several letters to Rossello, saying that changes to the proposed fiscal plan are required.

The third invasion of Puerto Rico
 

mikenova shared this story .

The man owned an old truck. I survived doing minor jobs: fixing furniture, transporting debris, making austere moves. When I helped him get a mattress out of the vehicle box, I decided to talk to me. Perhaps I was grateful that I have been reading, probably, insisted on presenting at any opportunity, the renewed image of himself.

I have asked me if I would prefer that we speak in English. I answered no. He had an accent and in his attitude there was something uncomfortable and familiar. His question expressed the desire to show a skill that I considered greater and of which I wanted to brag. It was no longer the man from a rural neighborhood of Toa Alta, whose life was spun by linking the chapters of school dropout, the consumer and labor frequentation of the drug point, the pairing with the various mothers of their children, the first arrest, the second, and the dozen years as a prisoner. Now there was more, and in the words spoken in English, a new man was emerging: someone who had lived abroad and prided himself on knowledge of a language that had not mattered at all in school.He had returned to Toa Alta as if he were not from that town, as if he had sheltered him and had not been left to his fate for years, as if his stay abroad and his wild learning of another language had not occurred behind The walls of a federal prison. Man was a toxic accumulation of illusions.

Even so, his life was understandable and he had great similarities with that of many fellow citizens.

Just a few months ago, the third conquest of Puerto Rico began. The first is shared with the rest of Latin America. To this is added, in our case, the one made by the United States since the invasion of 1898, which since then has implanted a structure of narrow limits of action to the economic and political life of the country. The third is what happens at this moment. A country besieged by an economic depression of more than 10 years, constrained by its absurd coloniality, devastated by last year’s hurricanes and by the wave of government corruption and incapacity that they brought, is lax, incapable of making real decisions.

A government trapped in its annexationist ideology and its neoliberal superstitions, takes advantage of the debacle to dismantle the state and deliver the country. The accelerated approvals of educational, fiscal and labor reforms, the massive cut of funds, the plans to eliminate government agencies and services, the sale of the patrimony, the hiring at the price of gold of American officials to direct departments, the clandestine complicities with the Board of Fiscal Control, deepen the starvation of Puerto Rico and collaborate openly with the new conquerors.

Estos no arriban en barcos de guerra, sino que aterrizan provistos de un arma todavía más letal: una legalidad de diseño, construida para servir sus intereses y propósitos. Las Leyes 20 y 22, que permiten el traslado al país de extranjeros dueños de gigantescas fortunas, que se benefician de un casi inexistente pago de impuestos, a los que se añade la arribada mercenaria, posterior al huracán María, de docenas de acaudalados especuladores de nuevo cuño, profetas iluminados de arcanas criptomonedas, han transformado, en un abrir y cerrar de ojos, las políticas de ciudadanía del país.

Enfrentado a una sustancial reducción de sus márgenes de acción políticos y económicos, el gobernador Rosselló trae a la memoria la infausta imagen del presidente dominicano Buenaventura Báez, que poco después de mediado el siglo XIX, y enfrentado también a graves peligros económicos y políticos, negoció hasta obtener, para a última hora ver frustrada, la anexión de su país a Estados Unidos. Las privatizaciones emprendidas, la contratación en puestos claves de estadounidenses, el facilitar la llegada y asiento de acaudalados inversionistas extranjeros, ofrecen la fantasía de lo que el gobernador llamó, en una conferencia en Nueva York, el “lienzo en blanco” en que se habría convertido el país luego de María. Esta invisibilización de todo lo puertorriqueño, esta gasificación de nuestra realidad humana e institucional, no solamente desplaza nuestros problemas hasta la insignificancia, sino que al ignorarlos, diseña una sociedad en que la inmensa mayoría de sus ciudadanos, no es pertinente. La situación lleva a preguntarnos: ¿para quién es Puerto Rico?, ¿a quién representa el gobierno actual?, ¿qué sueño de un cuatrienio de veranos de huracanes es el de Buenaventura Ricardo Báez Rosselló?

Si algo ha demostrado la cultura y sociedad puertorriqueñas es su inusual capacidad de resistencia. Sobreviviente de conquistas e imperios, de abyectas condiciones económicas, desprovisto secularmente de poder de mando y autorrepresentación, este país no sólo ha perdurado, sino que se ha desarrollado y potenciado, en circunstancias que distan mucho de ser las ideales. Esta disposición a resistir rara vez se ha beneficiado de un apoyo unitario y nuestra historia alberga una larguísima lista de mujeres y hombres, que sacrificaron sus vidas en oposición a la fuerza bruta de una colonialidad, que consistentemente ha estado tentada o dispuesta a sacrificar lo que a duras penas hemos construido, creado y añorado.

A cada una de sus conquistas, el pueblo puertorriqueño ha opuesto cada una de sus resistencias. No será diferente ahora que confrontamos la tercera conquista de Puerto Rico.

Sin embargo, la suerte de la resistencia que apenas comienza, queda comprometida si no ocurre una transformación. El hombre del viejo camión, el desertor escolar, delincuente menor, padre ausente, que regresa a su barrio no solo como si fuera un forastero, sino fantaseando formar parte de los nuevos conquistadores, por haber aspirado durante años el aire enrarecido de una penitenciaría en que aprendió un idioma a fuerza de órdenes, tendrá que descubrir quiénes son las víctimas y quiénes son los victimarios. Muchos hombres y mujeres de todos los niveles económicos, tienen ante sí este reto óptico y conceptual: ¿en el espejo aparece un desposeído o un desposeedor? La pregunta no está atada a condiciones económicas, porque al momento es igualmente pertinente para los empresarios cuyas gestiones quedan disminuidas por arbitrios, impuestos y falta de protecciones por parte del gobierno, como los asalariados cuyas vidas se enmarcarán en los estrechos confines económicos y vitales que les dejaría la propuesta reforma laboral y las sombras que caen sobre los fondos de pensiones, así como las enormes y crecientes multitudes paupérrimas que van quedándose sin servicios de educación y salud, abandonados a su suerte sin electricidad ni trabajo, reducidos al más bajo denominador común en todas las áreas de su vida.

El gobierno, la Junta y los nuevos conquistadores hacen y harán todo lo necesario para que esa pregunta no llegue a nuestras mentes. Día a día, nos bombardearán con leyes y reformas que inspirarán miedo y comprarán la pasividad o la complicidad esgrimiendo una zanahoria. El dueño del camión era una acumulación tóxica de ilusiones, igual que nosotros que ya estamos insertos en la tercera conquista de Puerto Rico. Los dueños de negocios, los asalariados, los pensionados, los estudiantes y maestros, los profesionales tentados a emprender el camino del exilio, tienen cada mañana una pregunta aguardándoles en el espejo: “¿víctimas o victimarios?, ¿desposeídos o desposeedores?” El futuro de Puerto Rico pende de su respuesta.
