Should Puerto Rico's debt be forgiven?
Puerto Rico is buried under $74 billion of debt, much of it owned by hedge funds that bought it up for pennies on the dollar. Some politicians ---- have floated the idea of dramatically writing down that debt, or wiping it out altogether. Should the debt be wiped out?
As of Friday, Feb. 23, answers are running at 56 percent in favor of wiping out the debt entirely, 36 percent want it wiped out but want federal money to protect the pensioners, and 8 percent say the island should pay its debts in full. You can still take the survey, and it will be updated again next week.
