Marco Rubio on Free Trade
"This entire policy shift announced today is based on an illusion, on a lie, the lie and the illusion that more commerce and access to money and goods will translate to political freedom for the Cuban people," said Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), whose parents emigrated from Cuba in the 1950s. "All this is going to do is give the Castro regime, which controls every aspect of Cuban life, the opportunity to manipulate these changes to perpetuate itself in power."
The bulk of the criticism suggested that the conservative base remains firmly committed to keeping Cuban relations in the deep freeze where they have been for half a century. That position is increasingly at odds with the view of the electorate at large.
