Lin-Manuel Miranda, who created and stars in the Broadway musical "Hamilton," on Sunday night implored House Speaker Paul Ryan to push through a plan to ease Puerto Rico's financial crisis.

"It's nonpartisan. The hard part is in convincing Congress that Puerto Rico matters," Miranda, the son of Puerto Rican parents said in a rap on HBO's "Last Week Tonight." 

"So their heart is in the fight for relief, not a bailout, just relief. A belief you can pass legislation to ease our grief," he said. "Paul Ryan, I'll come sing 'Hamilton’ at your house. I'll do-si-do with Pelosi. I’ll wear my Hamilton blouse."

Ryan and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi are among sponsors of a bill to help the American territory with its $70 billion debt, but they have had opposition from conservative Republicans who fear the bill is a bailout.
