On May 2nd 2016, the government of Puerto Rico failed to make $422 Million debt payment to the U.S. government. In response, the U.S. House of Representatives is considering providing funding for a bailout or to allow a default and impose strict austerity measures. President Obama and House Democrats argue that the U.S. should bailout Puerto Rico and a failure to do so will cause an unprecedented humanitarian crisis. House Republicans oppose a bailout and have proposed creating a federal oversight board which would have the power to manage Puerto Rico’s budget and make cuts to public spending. Puerto Rico’s second payment to the U.S. of $1 Billion is due on July 1st 2016.  See recent Puerto Rico bailout news
