Issue Position

Location: Unknown

Our current policy of isolating Cuba is a relic of the Cold War which is doing little to create political change, but clearly is causing continued hardship for the people of Cuba. I believe it is in the best interest of the United States and the Cuban people to increase our economic and political contacts.

I believe we need to engage in a comprehensive review of our nation's policy toward Cuba. With almost 40 years of isolation, we are not closer to achieving our policy objectives. We need to evaluate other approaches. Consequently, I have voted to reverse U.S.-Cuba travel restrictions and lift the embargo.
