This bill is a crass gimmick bull s**t. In the past 57 years the statehooders have NEVER EVER been able to convince the majority of Puerto Rican residents (who are pro-Commowealth, pro-Territory)to vote in favor of statehood. Therefore, the only way to achieve a pro-statehood victory is to come up with a Revocable "Territory Yes or No" referendum so that, between statehooders and independentists voters, the Territory status can be defeated. If the "Territory-YES" wins, they will celebrate the same referendum every 2 years until the NO wins. Together, statehooders and independentists have more anti-Territory sympathyzers than there are pro-Territory. After winning, the anti-Territory sympathyzers would go for a second (IRREVOCABLE)referendum between Independence and Statehood, therefore securing a victory to the pro-statehood party since there are no more than 4% independentists on the island. Read the freaking bill: it's an antidemocratic gimmick to EXCLUDE pro-Territory voters.
