READ: Who's eligible for $$$

By Eric Rosario


The Office of the Governor of the CNMI put out a fact sheet on the eligibility of residents for direct federal cash assistance.


We made one edit to the fact sheet. The federal economic rescue package was NOT put together by Governor Ralph Torres and the nation's governors. It was created by Congress, of which CNMI Congressman Gregorio "Kilili" Sablan and Guam Congressman Michael San Nicolas are a part.


The gentlemen from the Marianas were the ones instrumental in ensuring Saipan, Tinian, Rota, and Guam's inclusion in the direct cash assistance and the Pandemic Unemployment Insurance programs.


The Governor's Office in Guam has NOT put together a similar fact sheet for the people of Guam.

Sorry my friend, as much as I admire your efforts as to getting at the truth - I am willing to post the facts. Neither San Nicolas or Kilili had anything to do with the federal funding. It was automatic. If anyone wants to confont me on this - just let me know. The federal government recognized the immediate funding need. Kilili and San Nicolas didn't matter. If you don't want to acknowledge that - then fair enough. If you are going to claim that San Nicolas and Kilili did something - than QUOTE the legislation. Otherwise SHUT UP. Tell the truth or don't say anything. Enough of the bullshit political nonsense. State the facts Kandit, or SHUT THE FUC…
