Hey, they don't need to pay taxes. Democrats will pass up taxes just to get another 2 democrat senators.

they voted for statehood just a short time ago, though the result was controversial because of the design of the questions. . the word is referendum by the way. The issues are incredibly complex, on both sides, but yes taxes is part of it for a lot of people.
If you want to understand why President Obama was re-elected despite a largely unsuccessful presidency and almost unprecedentedly high and continuous unemployment, just look at the Cuban-American vote.

In fact, if you want to understand America today -- specifically, why it is in decline -- just look at the Cuban-American vote.

As reported in the Wall Street Journal, "The president captured 48 percent of the Cuban-American vote in Florida -- a record high for a Democrat."

Democratic presidential nominees went from 25 percent of the Cuban-American vote in 2000, to 29 percent in 2004, to 35 percent in 2008 to 48 percent on 2012.
