Rep. Joe Garcia’s sudden support for business with Cuba’s dictatorship should not be a surprise
The news yesterday that U.S. Rep. Joe Garcia (D-FL) had broken ranks with his fellow Democrat and Republican congressional members in South Florida to support a business deal with the vile and repressive Castro dictatorship in Cuba should not surprise anyone. Joe Garcia has a long history of cozying up to and mingling with Castro sympathizers and business partners, happily and shamelessly accepting their campaign dollars.
Congressman With Tie To Castro Sympathizer Backs U.S.Trade With Cuba
Democratic Congressman Joe Garcia is backing an effort that would sandbag the U.S. embargo against Cuba, and open up trade between the two countries, a move that will certainly make him public enemy #1 in the Cuban-exile community. Garcia is backing the Havana research institute’s efforts of seeking U.S. approval to “test and market a diabetes treatment in this country,” which squarely puts him at odds with the South Florida Congressional delegation, that includes Representatives Ros-Lehtinen (R), Diaz-Balart (R),Wilson (D), and Wasserman Schultz (D), who all support the embargo.
But this sudden move by Garcia to open up trade with Cuba is nothing new, as far as Joe Garcia is concerned. It seems as if Garcia has always been a supporter of doing away with the embargo, and by taking a peek at who has donated and supported him over the years, the case can be made that Garcia backs the anti-Embargo play.
Back in 2010, The Shark Tank brought to light a number of Garcia donors, who all have business ties with Cuba, have benefited from President Obama’s easing of travel restrictions to the island, and would stand to benefit from the lifting of the embargo.
