Bipartisan support for rescinding Obama concessions to Castro dictatorship

Contrary to what the "Cuba Experts" have been spinning and would like you to believe, there is bipartisan support in Congress to revoke the unilateral concessions made to the Castro dictatorship by the Obama administration.

2nd bill limiting Cuba travel approved in Congress

A second bid to overturn President Barack Obama’s easing of restrictions on travel to Cuba has been endorsed in the U.S. Congress, this time an amendment submitted by South Florida Republican Rep. David Rivera and approved in a strongly bipartisan 36-6 vote.

The move approved by the House Foreign Affairs Committee late Thursday was an amendment to a State Department authorization bill, which Congressional analysts said could be easily stripped of the Cuba language as it makes its way through Capitol Hill.

But the vote tally showed surprising support by Democratic Congress members for a measure that runs counter to Obama’s policy of easing limits on Cuba travel — 20 Republicans and 13 Democrats in favor, and six Democrats against.

The amendment was similar to one that another South Florida Republican, Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, attached to a U.S. Treasury appropriations bill by a voice vote last month. Appropriations bills are considered to be much harder to change than authorization bills.
