I have to deal with what they think about Puerto Rico’s credit because they are the rating agencies. But let them govern? Again, if any of them wants to govern, the elections are in 2016. Found a political party or join the one that was going to do what they wanted.”

The translation of “me vale” to English is equivalent to “I don’t give a darn about..”. And I emphasize about the use of “darn” as the phrase in Spanish implies a strong term but without actually using it (as happens with the English word as well).
