This Just In: Senate To Introduce Bill To Lift Cuba Travel Ban

Tuesday, March 31, 2009


Per CNN, the U.S. Senate is introducing a bill into the Senate to lift the 47 year-old ban on travel to Cuba. Given the Democratic majorities in both the House and Senate, many see this latest effort to ban the ban to be the most viable in years. Per Senator Lugar (interestingly enough, a Republican sponsor of the bill), “we must recognize the ineffectiveness of our current policy and deal with the Cuban regime in a way that enhances U.S. interests.” Please, please finally do away with this acinine travel policy.
