United States Cuba Policy & Business Blog

Comment: A very good floor speech. The Senator states, "We have not yet found a way to get it [the legislation S. 428] to the floor. "

The reason for that is political money and political bullying by those pro-embargo forces in the Senate.
But even political money can only go so far. This issue does not have an intellectual or rational policy leg to stand on. Eventually there is going to be an open debate on this question.
And any politician who defends an irrational and illogical policy like denying all Americans the right to freely to travel to Cuba will have to realize that it is really about a political campaign contribution and not supporting any American ideal.
More on ways to break through the walls of political ignorance and arrogance on this issue in the coming days. - TM
