Dear Congressperson,
I solved this puzzle - can you?

Debt, Restructured

March 30, 2016

Send it to Congress

A very good piece by Lin-Manuel Miranda in the New York Times this week asking “Congress to put aside their differences and deal with the crisis confronting 3.5 million American citizens in the Caribbean.”

Puerto Rico is currently crushed by debt. Over $70 billion of it. Instead of coming up with solutions, politicians like Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) are rushing to use patronizing language about the onus of “righting the irresponsible course taken by the government of Puerto Rico.”

Debt restructuring should not be that hard to achieve. In fact, it shouldn’t take you too long to do it in 20-, 30-, 45- and 53-Across.

Solve the puzzle. Then click on one of the tabs below the grid to use Twitter or email and send the following message: “Dear Senator Hatch, I solved this puzzle — can you?”
